Buttermilk Pecan Pie

100 mins (prep 10, cooking 90)
10 ingredients
1 servings
A few years ago, my Husband (then boyfriend) requested pecan pie for his birthday. I found this recipe in an old Southern Junior League cookbook my mom gave me. It sounded good because it looked like it would be less sweet and syrupy than the usual and I was right! We liked it so much I told my mom about it and last year when the pecans came in, my dad requested she make this pie over and over. It says it is the family recipe prepared by a US Navy chef who cooked for such dignitaries as Harry S Truman and he refused to share this recipe until his retirement, when he allowed it to be published in a Navy newspaper. I'll list the recipe just as printed, however, I like to add more pecans (like twice as much).
