    The flavor was fantastic. I'm not sure there were enough pecans though as the top of the pie turned out an unrecognizable brown. I would have liked to see it firm up better as well.

    Made this for Thanksgiving because I did not have access to my original Derby Pie recipe. This was a winner and will now become my traditional Thanksgiving Pie! Delicious. We always make 2 because half like it cold and half like it warm. YUM

My great passion is watching my daughter perform with her high school bands. She absolutely amazes me at her talent! As a board member of our local summer youth theater organization I get to work with so many talented teens from all over the area. These kids prove that not all teens are bad and lazy, they work hard all summer long to put on a quality show for the community and I'm proud to spend time with them. I use many of the cookie/dessert recipes here to prepare for show weekend to sale at the concession booth before and during intermission each evening. <br /><br />My all time pet peeves are people who talk through movies and people who chew with their mouths open. <br /><br />If I had a month off with no work to do...I would plan it for the fall so that I could travel to football games around the country.</p>
