This tasted ok but was so very, very sweet that I couldn't eat it. Even my kids wouldn't eat this. I gave what was left to my neighbors rather than throw it away and even they said it was too sweet.

What a rich, decadent pie! It was a delicious ending to our New Year's dinner.

My pie came out quite runny, but I suspect it's because it says NO SUBS on the butter and whoops! I subbed in some cooking oil because I didn't have enough of the real stuff! However, this is, without a doubt, the tastiest pie I've ever made. I used chocolate covered cashews because I didn't have pecans. THIS sub was super!
