    Steve_G's Note:

    Don't like too sweet pecan pie? You'll like this one then, it's mostly nuts with just enough filling to hold them together. Nice change of pace and very decadent. I saw a pecan pie at a local Creole restaurant, in a suburb of Washington DC, that gave me the idea to develop this one.

      This has to be the best pecan pie I have ever made or tasted! Pecans take center stage in this fabulous recipe. Simple to prepare with excellent results! Thanks for sharing, Steve!

      Love this not too sweet pecan pie. I must say I did not follow the recipe exactly as I mis-read the direction. Instead of 1/2 C of Pecans toasted and processed, I used 1/2 of the Pecans! But, it turned out great and was very tasty. I had request for the recipe! Next time I will follow the direction, who knows maybe even better. Love the flavor

      Best pecan pie I have ever made. Pecan pie is my husband's hands-down favorite, and he absolutely LOVED this one. He had another slice of pie for breakfast the following morning. I'm not a big fan of pecan pie normally, but I ate an entire slice of this one and it was delicious.
