Mexican Pecan Pie

Ingredients

  • 7 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 5 tablespoons brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 eggs, separated
  • 5 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 2/3 cup finely ground pecans
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • Whipped cream
  • Cinnamon

Instructions

  1. Cream 6 tablespoons butter and brown sugar until fluffy. Add vanilla extract and beat in egg yolks until creamy.
  2. In a separate bowl, with very clean beaters, beat egg whites until soft peaks form. Add granulated sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, continuing to beat. Fold 1/3 of the egg whites into the yolk mixture. Add this to the remaining whites and fold in. Mix nuts with flour and fold into egg mixture. Pour evenly into a buttered 8 inch pie plate. Smooth the top.
  3. Bake at 350 degrees F until it tests done with a knife inserted near the middle, about 25 to 30 minutes.
  4. Cool on a rack for 10 minutes. Turn out of pan onto rack.
  5. Combine remaining 1 tablespoon butter and honey. Bring to a bubbling boil. Cool slightly and pour over pie while it is still warm.
  6. To serve, cut into wedges and top with whipped cream and a light dusting of cinnamon.
