I grew up in Spokane, Washington, and this was my mom’s answer to the classic pecan pie.

I still prefer it to the original, probably because my mom made it.

This is my original recipe written by my mom, Colleen Mott.

It is a simple, full proof recipe and it’s delicious!

Mix all ingredients together in a bowl.

Pour into prepared pie crust. Basic Pie Crust


Bake for 45 minutes in preheated oven.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
