Pecan pie is a creation of the U.S. of A. The native range of pecan trees
is primarily within the boundries of the U.S. I've been looking, but I
haven't found a recipe earlier than the 20th Century. The closest thing
I've found is a recipe for molasses pie (no nuts involved) from a cookbook
published in 1879.
