      My husband's comment "This is definitely a do-over!" Delicious! Tasted like a pecan pie with a little texture of pumpkin pie. I added more of each spice, used brown sugar instead of white, and half corn syrup/half maple syrup (recommended by another reviewer). While the filling wasn't super-shallow in the pie dish, I would agree with other's recommendations to double/increase the filling. This is such a good pie you're going to want more of it anyways!

      Fabulous pie. You know it had to come from New Orleans where decadence is an art form.
