Knock Your Socks Off Buttermilk Pie

2 3/4 cups sugar
4 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
3 Tbs flour
1 1/2 sticks margarine, melted
1 1/2 cups buttermilk
1/2 cup crushed graham crackers
3/4 cup chopped pecans
2 (9-inch) pie crusts, unbaked

1 Preheat oven to 325°. In a large bowl, mix together sugar and eggs; add vanilla and flour. Stir in margarine and buttermilk. Do not beat. Fold in crushed crackers and pecans. Pour into pie crusts, dividing mixture evenly between the 2 crusts. Bake 45 minutes or until center of pie is firm when tested with a knife. Best served warm.


***NOTE: Diane H (my Mother-in-law) makes this recipe and freezes one of the pies. It makes 2 and unless you are bringing them to an event, you'll never eat that's pretty rich, similar to pecan pie. She said that it freezes well and tastes really good still after being frozen. SO, I've never tried it, but heard from a reliable source that it works well.
