'Tis the Thanksgiving season so this appealed to me.

This was bitter so I added an extra 1/4 cup of sugar which helped. Still, it was good, but had a slightly bitter aftertaste. If I make this again, I will add one cup of sugar and use toasted almonds instead of pecans. I think with a few tweaks I can make this work for us. Thanks for sharing.
