Awesome! I made a homemade crust instead of the refrigerated one though. I would suggest allowing the pie to completely cool before cutting so that the filling can solidify. I served it warm out of the oven, and it was a bit runny; however, the next day it was perfect! The next time I made this, I added an additional 1/2 tsp. flour to the mixture, and it fixed the runny problem! Thanks for the recipe!

Very easy to make. Definitely has that buttery flavor I love about pecan baked goods. It is important to let the pie cool and then refrigerate for two hours before attempting to serve, or it will not hold it's shape and turn into a gooey mess. I would suggest to double up on the pecans to cut the sweetness of each bite. I was hesitant to try the recipe because it calls for corn syrup. I went ahead and tried it and later found a no corn syrup recipe at I will try that recipe next time and perhaps cut some of the sweetness out of it.

I love this recipe!! It is a less sweet version of the old favorite. My trick is to add a tablespoon of rum or rum extra. Out of this world!!

This was terrible. I followed the directions exactly, and by 40 minutes it was very golden brown (nearing burning) so I took it out. It was overdone cake-like and dry on the outer two inches, and the inner part (about 4 inches across) was gooey, uncooked and gross. I'd suggest less flour, only baking it at 325 and for a while longer... Or just find a better recipe altogether. It was a Thanksgiving embarrassing moment to cut into that lovely golden top to find such disappointment underneath.
