This recipe was awesome. It is the best pecan pie I have ever eaten. Although, I did add 1 teaspoon of vanilla to the recipe. That gave it excellent flavor. I made this pie for Christmas dinner, everyone raved about how wonderful it was. Even people who didn't care for pecan pie said that it was excellent. I would recommend this recipe to anyone.
Sorry folks, but I bake a lot of pies, and this is NOT a good pecan pie. WAY too sweet, I felt like I was eating a few pecans with my cornsyrup.
On a positive note, it sets fine - as a matter of fact it was so thick when I poured it into the shell, it stuck to the spoon! Experienced cooks - try another recipe, this one's not it.
I had been craving a pecan pie for a while so I decided to search for a recipe with good reviews. This recipe certainly lived up to its rating. I was not used to a deep dish pecan pie though. The kind my Mom always made was more shallow and chewy. This pie is thick and gooey, but delicious. Although the recipe did not call for it I was planning to add 1 tsp. of vanilla to the mixture before baking, but forgot. My pie did not need it, it was wonderful as is. I did take other reviewer's advice though, and added more pecans. YUM!! I will definitely be making this pie again!
This makes a very good pecan pie! Nice and rich, the way pecan pie should be! I added a touch of vanilla, but otherwise made it per the recipe and it turned out great. Will definitely use this recipe again!
I would give this more stars if I could. It was sooo very easy to make, and sooo yummy! My mom always makes the pecan pies for family gatherings, but I offered to bring them this year. They were a huge hit! I actually didn't have enough brown sugar for 2 pies - so I made 1 pie with brown sugar and 1 pie with white sugar. They were both fabulous! Thanks!
I love pecan pie and this one is no exception. My only gripe was that it had to cook so long. Knowing this from reading all the reviews, I covered the crust of my pie for all but the last 25 minutes. And the pecans on the top of my pie did burn a little. I'll find a way to remedy that, but overall it will be a good pie to serve at Thanksgiving.
I made this for Thanksgiving and it was a huge hit with all ages. I did put foil over it until the last 20 minutes.
Amazing. I turned it into tarts. Used premade shells, and it made 30 tarts. The best.
