Poor Man's Pecan Pie Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 3)
Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2008
This is the best pie ever. I love the pecan pie but do not like the pecans and this makes a wonderfully rich pie. This recipe is also good to make for family gathering as a substitute for pecan pie for those that may be allergic to nuts. This pie always turns out good. You can substitute light Karo syrup for dark Karo syrup, it works for me.

This didn't turn out at all. Perhaps the cooking time or oven temperature is wrong on this recipe, or there wasn't enough oats, or perhaps it needed another egg. At any rate, the pie was pure liquid inside after 45 minutes in the oven and overnight in the fridge. The recipe author needs to include how to tell if it is done. I'm currently trying to rescue the ingredients by destroying the pie and cooking it in a jelly roll pan. We'll see how that goes. Also, the portions that did cook tasted nothing like pecan pie. It tasted good, but it wouldn't fool anybody, not even a poor man. Update: the jelly roll pan trick worked, and it tasted nice (although nothing like pecan pie), but as written, my one star rating stands.

This is a excellent pie. I love to bake and this is so easy and good. The price of Pecans are through the roof these days and if you are looking for a tasty cheaper pecan pie than this is it!!!! It looks to nice too. I used Light Corn Syrup(that is all I had) instead and it turned out great!!!

I think this pie would be better with a light corn syrup. Mine needed about an hour to cook
