This recipe came from The New York Times Heritage Cookbook, published in the 70s. It’s pretty much like pecan pie, except for pine nuts instead of pecans. The cookbook says it’s from Massachusetts. I’d like to know if anyone has ever heard of it, and how Yankees came to get pine nuts. I made it for my blog, The Cooking of Lost America, at
