Georgia Pecan Pie!

I have southern roots.  My mom was born and raised in a small southern Georgia town called Alma.  I have always considered this small town my second home when I was growing up.  We took a summer vacation every year to South Georgia to visit my Grandma and all my southern relatives.  This is where my love for pecans and all things south come from.  This must be the main reason I want to move to the south, but that is a whole other blog post.  So back to the Georgia Pecan Pie.

Georgia Pecan Pie-

 

My Aunt lives in Waycross, GA and has a lot of pecan trees on her property.  My mom visits my Aunt every year and she ships me some pecans from my Aunt’s trees.  It can’t get any better than this.

You will have to forgive me for not making my crust from scratch like I usually do, but life was crazy this week.  You can find my homemade crust recipe from The Best Apple Pie on the Planet.

I still have to figure out how to get the middle of my Georgia Pecan Pie to not be runny.  If you have tips on how to make this happen, please leave me comments.

  1. Ummmm where does it tell you how much butter???? Butter should be listed in the ingredient list along with how much to use??

  2. After its cooked the 40-45 mins I turn the oven off and crack the door but leave the pie inside till cool, I never seem to have a problem with runny middles!
