How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Crunch the graham crackers with your hands until you have crushed the entire box or pulverize in a food processor until the size of bread crumbs. I don't use the box of crumbs, I found them to be stale.
  • In this order combine graham cracker crumbs, melted butter and sugar.
  • Stir until they are well combined, add the evaporated milk, water and the eggs, one at a time.
  • Finally add the pecans and stir until combined.
  • Bake for one to one and a half hour. Check with a toothpick at 1 hour mark.
  • Remove the from the oven let it cool slightly.
  • Cut it into squares and serve warm.
  • Topping: You might want to sprinkle powdered sugar or spread whipped cream on top.
