Oooooooh, BABY! This is a keeper- I made this today, and my boys are being quiet, first time all day- thanks to this pie! I only made a half-batch (1 pie), using walnuts, as pecans are pretty pricey right now. Even with walnuts instead, the texture, flavor, and overall consistency is superb- slices are clean and perfect, and the taste....just WOW! Thanks, Seasoned Cook, for my new favorite pie recipe! Simply outstanding. :o)
Yummy, yummy....this is now my favorite pie. Everyone in the family loved it. I made it exactly as written. Easy to make and I'm glad it made 2 as we had the first one almost gone before we ate supper that night. Will make this often.
I have used this same recipe for 35 years. My husband and kids love it. It is a never fail recipe without the ooey gooey taste and texture of Cairo syrup or molasses. Don't try to use one recipe in one deep dish pie shell. It doesn't work. I tried it and my pie never got done. Always split between two shallow pie shells.
My father and husband though this was the best pecan pie recipe! My husband doesn't typically like pecan pie and my father thinks there are never enough nuts. This receipe was a hit with both of them. My 85 year old father said this was the best pecan pie he had every eaten!
