This is double-delicious. The pecans on the bottom taste delicious. My baked pie probably won't set up because silly me forgot to add the flour! It still tastes great, though! I made it exactly as stated only I did brush some half-and-half and sprinkle some sugar on the top crust before baking. I will be using this recipe for one of my pies I will be baking for Thanksgiving. Congratulations on your football pool win!
