Mom's Pecan Pie

This is a tried-and-true recipe I grew up with. My mom (witch 123...Billie Blair, love you mom!) got the recipe from her friend Yvonne Arnette when we lived on the Navajo Indian Reservation in Ganado, Arizona in the 1960's. I have yet to taste a better pecan pie. It's simple....the only catch is to NOT over bake it. Your first instinct is to let it sit in the oven just a few more minutes. DON'T DO IT! Even though it looks like it's not done...it is. It will continue to "gel" as it sits out of the oven and you don't want to over bake this pie.
