    For us...this is a very different kind of filling for pecan pie. It is wonderful! All the flavours are there. It's quite sweet....so only a small slice is needed. Instead of a regular pie crust...I made "recipe #116887" and put some chopped pecans in the crust. This is a definately a keeper. Thank you Kelly for sharing.
