Mom's Southern Pecan Pie

This is the pecan pie I grew up eating.  Mine isn't ever as good as my mom's.  But it will have to do since mom passed away in October.  I alway throw about 1/2 - 3/4 of the pecans in the blender and pulse a couple of times.  People who usually don't like pecan pie don't believe it really is, as the nuts get chopped.

8 " Unbaked Pie Crust (I always use a deep dish)
1 c brown sugar, packed
1/2 c white sugar
1 TBS flour
2 eggs
2 TBS milk
2 tsp vanilla
½ c butter, melted
1 c pecans, broken
Mix together dry ingredients. Beat in liquids. Fold in pecans, pour into crust. Bake at 375 for 40 - 50 minutes or until top cracks! Top MUST crack or filling will be too gooey.
To cheat: Mix in blender (in this order) eggs, milk, vanilla, butter, mixed dry ingredients.
