This recipe is fantastic! I agree it is by far the best pecan pie I have ever had. I have been looking for a pecan pie recipe that partially cooks the filling so the pecans stay suspended in it for years! But no luck until you posted this. When my Dad was stationed in Mississippi many years ago the Base Chaplains wife gave my Mom a recipe similar to this for pecan pie but it got lost in the move to California. I am so thankful you posted this as it has brought back alot of good memories for me and my Mom!
