    melsmom's Note:

    This is the best pecan pie that I have had. The secret to this pie is cooking the butter until golden brown. There is a definite difference in doing it this way.

      Very good pecan pie! I strained the butter through a fine mesh to get the little browned particles out, and used pecan halves in concentric circles, rather than chopped pecans. Otherwise followed the directions exactly. Pecan pie doesn't last long around here, and this one was no exception! Thanks, melsmom, for sharing your recipe!

      this pie was great - by profession I am a pastry chef, but I am still young and learning - I decided to use this recipe as 'practice'- I added a 1/3 cup of chocolate (i used semisweet) - after the butter was browned, I mixed the chocolate in - very good - even impressed my family - think I'm gonna make it tonight -
