A traditional family recipe that we usually make for Pie Day (3.14 - March 14th).
First, we make the dough. We mix all ingredients in a mixer and let it rest in the fridge for an hour.
In the meantime, we mixed the filling in the food processor. We were rushing a bit, as we needed the pie to be ready for a specific time, so we mixed it all - and it turned out great!
Once the dough was ready, you can either roll it down flat and place it in the baking pan or "mush" it down with clean hands. We prefer the second option- much more fun, and the uneven surface adds "pumps" of crust to the pie.
Then, we pour the filling on top of the crust without baking. We smooth the surface.
We add decoration before baking. It can be sweet-pecan or other nuts, whatever we feel like at the moment.
To the oven for 10 minutes on 400 degrees follow by 365 degrees for another 25 minutes
Test it with a toothpick to see if it is read (if the toothpick is dry)
