"This pie is actually better the second day. So the best plan would be to make it the day before you need it, and let it sit in the refrigerator overnight."

My husband declared this pie to be too sweet. I agree, and think that 1/2 sugar added to the whipping cream is not necessary, and actually feels a bit gritty. If I make it again I will either cut the white sugar out completely or reduce it by half.

Yummy! Definately let it sit overnight. It really comes together on the 2nd day.

Very good. The one suggestion I have is to definitely whip up half the whipped topping for your inside layers and wait to whip up the remainder for your top layer when you get ready to serve it. I made this a day ahead of time and the whipped topping was very running when I went to serve it.

What a delicous dessert. It was a very good blend of flavors and it hit the spot on a hot day.

This was a really GOOD pie! I had a ready made crust and pressed the pecans in the bottom. I used lite cream cheese, sugar free pudding and lite Cool Whip. My family spooned this into their mouths and declared WOW!

I made this for a bbq this weekend and it was a huge hit! My husband has already asked when I plan on making it again! I made the pie the day before and followed some other reviewers' advice by only making half of the whipped cream for the center layer and making the rest of the whipped cream for the top layer before serving it. That worked great. I also used a ready-made pie crust and pressed the pecans into the crust before baking it. I can't wait to make it again!
