As far as taste is concerned, this was a 5 star...BUT, I found that the directions were lacking. You say to mix with a hand mixer, but for how long? Till what consistency? I mixed it long enough for the batter to rise and be smooth, not really runny...when I stirred my pecans in like directed, they sank straight to the bottom. So, I ended up putting in more pecan halves and poked at them with a toothpick until they went just ever so slightly below the surface and then baked as directed. If I hadn't have done that, then it would have looked like a Chocolate Pie with a pecan surprise at the bottom, rather than looking like what it was supposed to be. Other than that, like I said, it tasted brilliant but the directions are lacking too much for me to give this a five star! If it was up to me, I would mix until well beaten and smooth. Then I would pour pecan pieces in to just cover the batter, followed by the remainder of the batter. I would then pour on the pecan halves and lightly poke them to just below surface level so that you can still see the pecans clearly and then bake. I will definitely use this recipe again!
