Pop singer Justin Timberlake recently opened his first restaurant in New York City. Called Southern Hospitality, it's a BBQ joint that serves exactly what you would expect from a Southern boy at heart: ribs, cornbread, hush puppies, and fried chicken. Many of the recipes are from his family's collection, including his grandmother's deviled eggs and pecan pie. Says Timberlake of his beloved deviled eggs:
It's my granny's original recipe that I grew up eating and she finally showed me how to make them.
That's not the only recipe his granny is sharing, because we have her scrumptious pecan pie. With a sweet, syrupy filling and crunchy, melt in your mouth pecans, this is one recipe that you will definitely want to make. For all of us who don't live in NYC, baking this pie is a great way to experience Justin's new eatery. So get the recipe now, all you have to do is
3 eggs, beaten
3/4 cup sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons flour
3 tablespoons butter, melted
