2 MEDIUM OR 1 EXTRA LARGE EGG
1/4 CUP EVAPORATED MILK OR CREAM
1/2 TSP. VANILLA EXTRACT
1/8 TSP. CINNAMON

4 TBSP. STICK MARGARINE OR BUTTER
1/2 CUP BROWN SUGAR
2 TBSP. FLOUR
1/2 CUP CHOPPED PECANS
Use a pastry fork or pastry blender and blend the butter, brown sugar and flour well. Blend until it is crumbly and consistent in texture. Add chopped pecans and mix well.
Sprinkle on potato mixture and bake at 350 degrees until set. About 40-45 minutes.
1 1/2 CUPS FLOUR 1/2 CUP SHORTENING
1/4 TSP. SALT 3-5 TBSP COLD WATER
Cut shortening and salt into flour with pastry blender or fork. Shortening should have some larger pea size pieces. Do not blend until fine.
Add cold water in mix until all the flour is mixed in when you press dough against sides of bowl. Take out of bowl-knead a couple times on counter. Shape into a ball. Wrap with plastic wrap refrigerate for 30 minutes. (important) After chilling, knead on a “lightly” floured surface. Shape into a ball. With a rolling pin, roll dough while turning quarter circle turns after each roll. (should make a round shape) Roll dough until circle is 1 1/2 inches wider than pie plate. Check size by placing pie plate upside on top. Roll dough onto rolling pin and unroll over top of pie dish. Press middle into pie dish and crimp edges.
Prick pie crust with fork before baking if doing a pre-bake. Prebake at 375 degrees until golden brown for pie crust to be filled and chilled. Prebake at 350 degrees for 12 minutes for pie that will be filled and baked again in the oven.
