Don´t overfill the crust even if there is excess filling. The filling rises and puffs while cooking. The pecans will rise to the top of the pie forming a crusted layer.


Pecans are a nut native to North America. The Algonquians named this nut pacane, meaning a nut that needs to be cracked with a stone.
