I've been trying for years to find a recipe to duplicate "Edward's Pecan Pie", which is my favorite and which I can no longer find in the market; this is very close. It has that smooth buttery flavor - a filling that doesn't over power the pecans, but compliments them. I made it to take to a party and everyone loved it.

I dont know what I did wrong but, the consistency was awful. It was like pecan pie soup....The flavor was good so I gave it 3 stars.

This is a great pecan pie recipe, however I would not recommend going with a store bought pie crust it comes out much better with the crust recipe listed plus it is much tastier.

I'm from England and I made this recipe for my friends in america this thanksgiving, having never made a pecan pie before. The recipe was easy to follow and the pie tuned out perfectly. Was loved by all. It makes a very pretty presentation.

I will say that my Fiance is from the south (GA) and loves Pecan pie. When I followed this recipe to the "T" he fell in love with me all over again! I have made it 3 or 4 times for him already and it has only been 2 weeks. This recipe is GREAT!!!!

This pecan pie is very easy to make and tastes wonderful. I never knew making a pie crust from scratch could be so easy. Even i couldn't mess it up!! Hint - if you don't have time to make the crust and want to use frozen premade - make sure to use the "deep dish" ones because this recipe yields a large amount of filling.

This recipe was the 1st pecan pie I had ever made and it made me look like an old pro! I made it for my father in law for his birthday because it is his favorite and he LOVED it! My husband said it was a close runner up to the "name-brand" pecan pies I order at Christmas time - no more ordering for me! :)

I made this as a "gift" for someone who loves pecan pies and he loved it. It was very easy to make, recipe was really easy to follow. I will definitely be making this one again- for me next time.
