YUM ! Pecan pie is by far my absolute favorite pie in the whole world. I added about 3/4 cup of pecans rather than 1/2, but kept all else the same. I've got one of these in the freezer already - it was sooo good. Thanks for posting - this one's a keeper !

This was my first try at pecan pie, and it was super easy and sooo delicious!! I added a cup to the total amount of pecans, (making 1 1/2 total), next time I think I will use 3/4 of a cup as that felt like a few too many. I also used Lite Karo, and I think the taste and consistency were still great. This is definitely a keeper.

First, I have to admit that I have tried pecan pie only once in my 40 years & did not like it at all. What made me want to try it again? Well, each PAC I challenge myself to try one food or method that is new to me. This time it was the pie. Making it myself made it a lot less scary. It always helps when you know exactly what went into your food. I made & used recipe #333273 for this. I was pleasantly surprised when not only myself, but DS really enjoyed it. :) Thanks for sharing your MIL's recipe, Carol! It was super easy to make & very delicious! Made & enjoyed for Fall 2009 Pick A Chef.
