I've been making this pie for

I've been making this pie for almost 40 years, but I don't use the nuts. Won a blue ribbon at the county fair with it. I bake it a little bit differently. At the beginning I bake at 400 for 15 minutes, then reduce heat to 350 and bake for 25 minutes. Then put the topping on and bake for 10 minutes at 350.
