 Ingredients List

  • 1 Pie shell, 9 inch baked
  • 1/2 c Butter
  • 2 c Sugar, light brown
  • 4 Egg yolks
  • 2 tb Flour, all purpose
  • 1 ts Cinnamon
  • 1/2 ts Allspice
  • 1 ts Nutmeg
  • 1 c Cream or evaporated milk
  • 1/2 c Dates; chopped
  • 1/2 c Raisins
  • 1/2 c Pecan meats, broken


Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Cream together butter and brown sugar. Beat
in 4 egg yolks. Mix together flour and spices and then add. Stir in cream,
dates, raisins and nuts. Fill the shell;bake the pie until set, about 30
minutes. When cool take 2 or 3 egg whites and make a meringue as a
topping. The dates are not necessary but a nice extra;without them and the
nuts it is called a Kentucky or Arkansas pie. This is a great favorite in
southern cafeteria and small town restaurants. Source: mom
