1 walnut in-shell = 18-23 grams = .65-.8 ounces
14 shelled walnut halves = 1 ounce or 224 halves per lb

about 1/2 lb of shelled walnut halves.
If my math is wrong, tell me, please

I can't seem to get my pecan pie filling to stay inside the crusts! It somehow leaks through the crust (no breaks in bottom or sides) and makes the pie very greasy and soggy. Here's the recipe:
2# lt. brown sugar
1# melted margarine
4#8oz. lt. corn syrup
