Hi..I haven't tried this recipe yet and I have never baked a pecan pie!!! So, I am a little concerned should it come out "runny" as per some comments posted. Another fellow RecipeZaar member noted in another post the following suggestion: "Bake at 350 for 45 to 50 minutes or until center is set. If using an electric oven you might have to add 15 to 20 minutes to the baking time. In either case, test with a toothpick after 45 minutes." This is going to be my plan, keeping my fingers crossed! I'll let you know if this does the trick...thanks for posting. :)

Fantastic pecan pie! Made it for my husbands birthday as he doesn't like cake and requested pecan pie. I think we've started a new tradition! We will be using this recipe from now on. I also let the pecan float to the top so they were glazed, and had to adjust the cooking time to about 70 mins.

Delicious flavor. I poured the pecans in the crust then poured the filling over it. Glazed the pecans beautifully. The baking time in the recipe is definitely off -- I baked closer to 60 - 70 minutes. Thanks for posting it!

Its a great recipe, super easy. I put some of the chopped on bottom of crust and put whole pecans and the rest of chopped pecans on the top. It adds a more complex nut flavor by roasting some and caramelizing the ones that rise from the bottom. **For those with problems. Make sure the rack is in the center of the oven, use an oven thermometer to make sure oven is correct temp. If it is browning more on one side rotate pie. I had to cook the pie for the full time plus a few more min. Pie is done when a toothpick inserted in the pie one inch from the side comes out clean. Dark brown sugar gives a darker pie. Make sure you use karo syrup that is only corn syrup and vanilla.

I don't know what I did wrong but my pie didnt set up, it has great flavor so we ate it anyway but it was more like soup with a pecan crust. My top burned some so i took it out of the oven after trying to cook it a few mins more to get it to set maybe i need to cook it at a lower temp for a longer amount of time .

Flavor was very good, but cooking time did not set the pie. Followed directions to the tee and it was still runny. Made this pie twice and had to double the cooking time.

The cooking time seems woefully short. I went fifty minutes, and the pie had not settled at all. I recommend going at least 60 minutes, but probably closer to 70 minutes.

Such a simple recipe and sooooo good! I used a frozen pie crust that I had handy and it mixed up in about 5 minutes. It turned out so pretty I had to post a picture since this recipe didn't have one yet. I will be definitely making one of these for Christmas dinner! Thanks so much for the recipe!
