Got this recipe in the mail from the folks at Taste of Home (their photo). My mother loved the flavor of butter pecan. I wish she was here--I'd make it for her.

Pour into crust, sprinkle with reserved crumb mixture. Place springform pan in a large baking pan; add 1 inch of hot water to larger pan.
