i don't eat nuts so i did not try this myself. i took it to work and everyone really loved it. i guess they didn't recognize the brandy, but noticed it was a little different from a standard pecan pie. "what did you put in this?" got that a lot. so, it's a keeper! it was also really easy, first pecan pie i had ever made.

This recipe is REALLY good, lots of rave reviews---one things though---the recipe said to put it in a 9" unbaked pie crust. I tried this and there was WAY too much for one---we made two pies with the recipe, but they turned out rather thin. I would probably use a 9" extra deep pie crust next time in order to make just one thick pie
