Nana Deane's Pecan-Coconut Pie
Alton Brown Shares a Yummy Southern Dessert
The Food Network's Alton Brown joined Good Morning America to share recipes from his newest book, "Feasting on Asphalt: The River Run."
This book documents his motorcycle ride from New Orleans to Minnesota along the nation's first "highway," the Mississippi River. He and his crew met the people and sampled the food that embody our American road-food heritage.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the sugar, eggs, melted butter, buttermilk, coconut, pecans, flour, vanilla and salt.
Pour this mixture into a 9-inch pre-baked pie crust.
Bake for 45 minutes or until the pie is golden brown and the center is barely set.
Cool for 40-45 minutes before serving.
