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!

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 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 is a keeper for sure. A MUST TRY for anyone looking for one of the best desserts around!!!
