This is the recipe I make for Dad's birthday/Thanksgiving present. Ma's favorite pie (she took extra insulin to eat a huge piece every time I baked it for her) and the pie never lasts long!

I have also used extra nuts as I make multiple pies at a time and can't get packages of nuts with just the amount I need. Trust me, you want to make more than one! Let them cool completely, bake in disposable pans, and then freeze in gallon ziplocks. Just make sure not to stack them until they are frozen completely!
