Excellent pecan pie - perfect texture and just the right kind of sweet. I have made this many times and it took a while to get the hang of tempering the egg so it didn't scramble when you added the hot sugar mixture (a couple of times some of the eggs did get a bit cooked, but you couldn't tell in the finished product), but it's worth it. Great recipe!
