A restaurant in Claremore, OK sells this pie and the recipe is on the placemats on the table.
LEMON PECAN PIE
6 whole eggs
1/3 stick oleo(do not use whipped)
2 1/4 Cups white sugar
3/4 cups Pecan halves or pieces
1 teaspoon Lemon extract
juice of 1/2 lemon
Mix ingredients in order given, but do not use a mixer or beat until flothy. Pour into an 8" unbaked pie shell. Put in preheated oven (350) and bake about 10 min. then cut oven temperature to 300(slow oven) and bake until crust is browned and pie is set. Too rapid cooking will cause pecans to scorch and crust to brown before center of pie has finished cooking. For variety try Orange Pecan Pie.-substitute juice of 1/2 fresh orange for the lemon juice and 1 tsp. of orange extract in lieu of lemon exrtract.
I've never tried the orange but the lemon is so good and my son's expect it or ask for it on Christmas. It takes a long time to cook, so don't panic if not set in an hour.
