Where do I start? This pie deserves more than five stars!!!I havent been so pleasantly suprised in a long time. What a simplistic in nature pie, but with out of this world results.This is the best pecan pie that I have ever had. After hearing me cooing over this pie before it even had a chance to cool completely, two people came over to the dark side(so to speak)and no longer can say we dont eat pecan pie...yuk...This pie converted them!I changed absolutely nothing. I would say try this, but Ill be selfish and keep all the accolades for myself:)This pie rocks.Thank you, ill never use another pecan pie recipe again.:)PeggyLynn
