Honey Crunch Pecan Pie

"This recipe is an adoptee from the RecipeZaar account. I changed the recipe slightly because the crust ingredients were entered incorrectly by the original owner of this recipe (unless the crust was really made of 1/3 cup flour and 1/2 cup crisco, which I highly doubt). Anyway, this is a very good pecan pie; I think the honey added to the topping is really nice. I hope you enjoy it!"

  1. This is found in The Great American Favorite Brand Name Cookbook. It is a most awesome pie if you love pecans,brown sugar custard and crunch topping. I was going to post it but found it already listed. Make this pie and you will be very happy. It has been "our pecan pie" for at least 5 years. Note: we use rum.


I wandered onto Recipezaar less than a year ago, looking for a lentil soup recipe. I'm pretty sure I haven't left the computer since then...I've been completely sucked in by this site! Of course, I do take the occasional break to actually cook the recipes I find. When I'm not at my computer or in the kitchen, I'm working toward my PhD in clinical psychology from Kent State. I also work as a therapist at the campus clinic, teach a class (Social Psychology this semester), and work as a research assistant. I'm a little bit busy. I do usually find time every day to cook something for myself with the help of this site, and to exercise (to counteract the effects of the great recipes I find here). I don't have much time in my life for hobbies at the moment (sigh), but I seem to recall that I used to like reading, going to see musical performances, and watching movies. I still do my best to travel as much as possible. My sister, Kate, my boyfriend, Jake, and my friend, Kris, are my favorite travel partners. Kate and I go on an "eatacation" every year.
