Dark Pecan Pie - Virginian Hostess Style

50 mins (prep 10, cooking 40)
8 ingredients
1 servings
This is a very fine dark pecan pie, its chess pie custard looks similar to commercial pies. This was adapted from a recipe in The TOH Cookbook, but any good Virginian must improve the appearance of her pie by placing perfect pecan halves in a decorative pattern on top of the chopped pecan filling. The pie took me 60 minutes in total baking time.
