Pecan Pie (sans corn syrup)

Adapted from here

1 cup light brown sugar
1/4 cup white sugar
1/2 cup butter
2 eggs
1 tablespoon whole wheat flour 
1 tablespoon milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup chopped pecans
9 inch pie shell (if using deep dish, use 1.5x as much of each of the other ingredients... don't forget 1/4 c sugar = 4 T, so 1.5x is 2 extra T)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. 

In a large bowl, beat eggs until foamy, and stir in melted butter. Stir in the brown sugar, white sugar and the flour; mix well. Last add the milk, vanilla and nuts. 

Pour into an unbaked 9-in pie shell. Bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes, then reduce temperature to 300 degrees and bake for 45-50 minutes (pecans start to smell nutty), or until done. (Don't forget to use a baking sheet under the pie in case it spills over or the butter leaks out.)

Cool significantly before serving.
