      After making this pie, you'll never be able to NOT brown the butter. It really makes a good pie better.

      I cannot say enough about this pie. Whenever I make a Kittencal recipe, I know I won't be disappointed. Mixing the ingredients in the blender not only created a much smoother yet frothy filling but also made clean-up a breeze. The taste and texture were out of this world! Bravo, Kittencal.

      The browned butter adds so much depth of flavor! Having no pecans in my cupboard, I substituted walnuts and made a few changes to accomodate the difference. A great recipe - my DH went back for thirds!
