I love to bake

I love to bake and have been trying recipes for over 20 years. I recently had to pack my home and can't find my recipes. I desperately need a good old fashioned recipe for pecan pie. I'm a Southern girl so I need a recipe for the crust too. We prefer it to be flaky. Please help if you're willing to share.

 I use the same crust. I love it.

I don't have a recipe for pecan pie, sorry. Welcome to the group too.

 Hope you find your recipes, and welcome to the group.

I'm a Southern born girl, and this is the recipe I use.

Pecan Pie
1 9" pie shell, unbaked
3 eggs
1 cup white sugar
1 cup white corn syrup
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon dark rum or 1 teaspoon rum flavoring
2 Tablespoons melted butter
1 1/2 cups pecans
Prepare pie crust. Do not bake. Break eggs into mixing bowl, beat well. Add the following ingredients one at a time: sugar, corn syrup, salt, rum, butter, beating well after each addition. Stir in pecans. Pour into shell. Bake 1 hour.

Pie Shell
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 oz. (2 ½ Tablespoons) salted butter, chilled
1/3 cup (2 oz) vegetable shortening, chilled
3-4 Tablespoons ice water
Divide butter into 6-8 pieces and using Pastry Blender (or two forks) cut into flour until size of peas. Divide shortening and cut into flour mixture until size ranging from bread crumbs to large lima beans. Chill 15 minutes. Sprinkle with 3 Tablespoons ice water. Bring together. Shape into oval disk. Wrap in plastic wrap. Chill 30 minutes-2 hours, or place in freezer 30 minutes. Roll out on lightly floured surface. For blind shell-fill with aluminum foil & beans and bake in pre-heated 450 oven for 10 minutes, then lower temperature to 375 for 5 minutes. Lower temperature to 325. Remove foil and beans. Prick crust with fork. Bake 15-20 minutes at 325.

Notes: you can eliminate shortening and use 6-oz (1 1/2 sticks) butter. This is especially good for fruit pies.
You can substitute milk for water; this makes it easy to shape for a free-form pie.

Double the amounts for a pie with top and bottom crust.

I've never made a pecan pie.  I just wanted to say I'm really sorry that you can't find your recipes.  That stinks.  :(

SweetLuci always has a good recipe for anything southern-she used to have her own resteraunt-so I trust her for recipes that have been actually "tried and consumed".

Sorry you can't find your recipes.
