Basic pastry recipe: see Pumpkin Pie

Pecan nuts are grown in the southern states and are the inspiration for this most delicious pie. It is a first cousin to the treacle tart but the pecans make it unique. In ‘bake-offs’ it always wins a prize. It is at its most delectable served warm with vanilla ice cream.
