This is the same recipe I use (I found mine in "Cotton Country") and it really makes a wonderfully delicious pecan pie. That browned butter makes all the difference, doesn't it? Everyone should try this recipe!
Quite frankly, no one in my family likes pecan pie. However, an unknowing aunt of mine requested that I make a pecan pie for Christmas. I stumbled upon this recipe and decided to give it a try. OH MY MY!!! Let me say that this is way more than a 5 star pie!!!! I made it exactly as written in the recipe. When it came time for dessert on Christmas Eve, my family of 6 took small pieces to be nice. My aunt took a HUGE piece. My aunt said it was the best pecan pie she had ever eaten. The rest of my family (including me) were instantly converted to pecan pie. My husband told me he wished I had made an extra one and I have to make this a tradition at all future holiday tables. I happily agree!
A not so humble pie. I thought that there was not another dessert application for browned butter that I would want to try and then I go and find this. Just don't tell me the calorie count. Allow me to be blissfully ignorant.
This was a first try for me in making a pecan pie. Because of the 5 star rating and great remarks from others I knew I wanted to try this. It is hands down one of the best pecan pies I have eaten. I got rave remarks from everyone who ate it and even got asked for the recipe. This is the PERFECT Thanksgiving or anytime pie for company. You won't be sorry..you will love it. I do believe browning the butter as the others have said makes all the difference in taste of this delicious pie!!! So glad I found this..it is a keeper for sure. A MUST TRY for anyone looking for one of the best desserts around!!!
My husband freaked when he took a bite into this! He told me to put this recipe somewhere safe to be sure not to loose it! And not to change a thing! It was perfect! He loved it! As did everyone else! It was a huge hit at our house for Thanksgiving! WE loved it!!!! THE perfect Pecan Pie!!!!
DH loved this recipe thanks for posting
This pie was delicious! I made it for Thanksgiving for the three of us that like pecan pie. It didn't even last 24 hours! This will be a new favorite for future Holidays for sure! Thanks Luby!
Wow, Wow, Wow!!! This is one rich pie! I made this for Thanksgiving dinner, and it was the BEST pecan pie I have ever made. Browning the butter really does make a difference and lends this pie a terrific flavour. I loved the crushed pecans, and added a few of them whole as well, just for kicks. This will be the pie I make from now on, no sense looking any further, as I do not believe it can be beat! Thanks for a great recipe Luby! :)
