In answer to a request, here's a recipe, first printed more than a decade ago, from J.H. of Signal Mountain. It addresses the popular question of how to duplicate the Amaretto Pie as made at Mount Vernon Restaurant.

1 pie crust, homemade or store-bought

Pecan halves

2/3 cup white sugar

1/2 cup flour

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 cups milk

3 slightly beaten egg yolks

2 tablespoons butter

3 tablespoons Amaretto liqueur

Meringue or Cool Whip, optional
Prepare the pie crust for baking; press pecan halves into crust. Bake as directed until light brown. Cool.

Mix in double boiler the sugar, flour and salt. Add milk. Cook 10 minutes over hot water until mixture thickens. Remove from heat.

Have the slightly beaten egg yolks ready in a large bowl. Pour half the hot mixture into the bowl and stir. When mixture is smooth, return it to the other unmixed half and cook over hot water until thickened. Remove from heat and stir in butter and Amaretto. Cool slightly, pour into pie crust and chill. If desired, top with a meringue or Cool Whip. May be served as is.

This is a most sought after recipe from a local restaurant. It is a secret recipe and I met the wife of the man who opened this in 1950. Your mom and dad might like this.
