This is hands down my favorite pie. It used to be just pecan pie until I tried this one. I have had the original from Pappadeaux, and this is just like it. Superb!

I liked this a lot but I had to cook a lot longer than it said. Now, it may be my oven. Also, I would use a much deeper pie dish since the 9" seemed too full! Really good though.

Oh my goodness! This pie is so sinfully good that it ought to be against the law! The bourbon sauce is yummy. We had it on Thanksgiving this year and there wasn't so much as a crumb left.
