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.
