  • Cover the pie with foil bake 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
  • Remove foil and bake 30 minutes uncovered.
  • INSERT A TOOTHPICK in the center of the pie.  It should NOT be watery. The pie filling needs to stick to the toothpick.
  • Allow pie to cool 2 hours before cutting it.
  • Pie freezes well

Notes

Total baking time should be one hour.   Insert a toothpick in the center of the pie.  It should not be watery.   The center of the pie filling should stick to the toothpick and not be runny. 
The one hour time will depend on the temperature of your oven.  Insert a toothpick in the center of the pie.  If the toothpick is watery the pie is NOT done.  If the pie filling sticks to the toothpick, it is ready.
Arrange whole pecans decoratively around top of pie before baking to dress this pie up.
