Pecan Sour Cream Pie

This is the last of the Lincoln's Birthday vintage recipes for this year. This one just sounded fabulous!

Pecan Sour Cream Pie
1 recipe pie pastry (Ok, yes, that's vague, but you could get a crust already made.)
1 c. chopped pecans
2 tsp. flour
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. cloves
1 c. sour cream
2 eggs, well beaten
1 c. sugar
1/2 tsp. grated lemon rind
Whipped cream
Line a pie plate with pastry and sprinkle with pecans. Mix the flour, cinnamon, cloves and small amount of sour cream, then add remaining sour cream gradually.  Stir in the eggs, sugar and lemon rind and pour into pie shell.  Bake in 450 degree oven for 10 minutes.  Reduce temperature to 325 degrees and bake for about 40 minutes longer or until firm.  Serve with whipped cream.

Mmmm. This sounds delish! I love traditional pecan pie, and this seems like a great variation. The sour cream will add a layer of richness...and you just can't have too much of that!
