Cookie Crust Pecan Pie 1969

Marcia McCance


This 1969 Pillsbury Bake Off winner was in Mom's recipe drawer. I was attracted to it because it does not have that gooey sickening center that pecan pie usually has. I love pecan pie, but hate that icky center. This might make something much more palatable.

It must have been really good to win the whole bake off contest!!
