First pecan pie I made was a corn syrup style from Betty Crocker’s cookbook summer 1969. Pecan pie is my dad’s favorites. In the mid 80’s I GOT THIS RECIPE – my next-door neighbor from Michigan had NEVER seen a pecan pie (I am from where pecans grow!) I jokingly called it cockroach pie, as pecans can look like roaches if you wear heavy eyeglasses, and he does! We are now married –24 years later THIS is his favorite pie – AND the review to use Smuckers caramel ice cream topping- OMG that will make it so much easier THANK YOU restaurateur FLORENAS –for your great review- I also understand why this pie is your best seller – it outshines all - one time using caramels -all other ‘types’ of pecan pie making starting more than 40 years ago – I abandoned! Occasionally I send this pie by mail to my dad in Tampa FL - it holds up pretty well. NEW EXPERIENCE- I accidentally over cooked this at least 20 minutes. The custard was solid enough when cutting pieces - they held together GREATLY - good for giving to guests as a take home with only saran wrap. I did use aluminum on crust edges to keep from burning.
