OMG...how could anyone rate these anything other than a 5 star? I love these. Just made them for my husband's thanksgiving meal at work. These are great for a potluck because you can cut them up and dont need silverware plates etc. Much better than pecan pie I think. Crust resembles shortbread...but a little different. I doubled the pecans as other reviewers suggested. I will definitely make these again...THANKS! Read More

Tip: I doubled the Pecans... measured them whole and pulsed them in the food processor until they were the right size. I also toasted the Pecans first when they were whole. For the crust I used all butter... no margarine. I also used 1/2 of whole wheat flour and 1 1/2 cups standard flour and to add some heartiness. These were delicious! Read More

Be careful when you put it in a jelly roll pan. I did that and had an absolute mess in my oven. You have to be extra careful when putting it back in the oven. Read More

My kids love this. It's really sweet and rich. I didn't even have enough corn syrup so I ended up using less plus I substituted some honey but was still short the whole amount. I can't imagine how sweet it would have been had I completed the recipe with the whole amount. I'll probably keep making it the way I accidentally did this time! Read More

I used light corn syrup as that's all I had. I first tried one after it had cooled & it was good but I thought it lacked sweetness. After sitting overnight it's pecan pie perfection! Thank you so much! I'll definately be making these often! Read More
