    1                    Pie shell, 9 inch baked
      1/2   c            Butter
    2       c            Sugar, light brown
    4                    Egg yolks
    2       tb           Flour, all purpose
    1       t            Cinnamon
      1/2   ts           Allspice
    1       t            Nutmeg
    1       c            Cream or evaporated milk
      1/2   c            Dates -- chopped
      1/2   c            Raisins
      1/2   c            Pecan meats, broken
 
   Preheat oven to 325 degrees.  Cream together butter
   and brown sugar. Beat in 4 egg yolks. Mix together
   flour and spices and then add. Stir in cream, dates,
   raisins and nuts.  Fill the shell;bake the pie until
   set, about 30 minutes.  When cool take 2 or 3 egg
   whites and make a meringue as a topping. The dates are
   not necessary but a nice extra;without them and the
   nuts it is called a Kentucky or Arkansas pie. This is
   a great favorite in southern cafeteria and small town
   restaurants. Source: mom
