Really delicious! I reduced the sugars down to a little less than 1/2 cup each; added an extra Tbsp. cream a full cup of Pignoli (toasted in the oven for about 6-8 min at 175 C (350 F)) and a few drops of almond extract; also baked in pastry dough instead of a pie shell. I served this to guests - there were only 4 of us and it was gone by the end of the evening! Thanks for this simple divine recipe! Read More

This recipe was quick and easy. The taste and texture is almost like a pecan pie. The only change I made was toasting the nuts before putting them in the pie to make the flavor more powerful. Wait until completely cooled before cutting - although when you smell this baking you'll have a hard time waiting! Great recipe! Read More

I was given a huge bag of pine nuts and looked for recipes I could use them in besides salads and pesto. I was delighted when I found this recipe. It was very easy to make. Use butter and not margerine for the richer flavor. I used a full cup of pine nuts toasted them on a cookie sheet before using them in the pie which filled a regular 9 inch frozen pie crust. I brought two pies into work and they were gone in no time. Everyone wanted the recipe. Read More

This was delicious. It didn't look like a pecan pie like I expected. It has more of a cookie-looking crust. I toasted my pine nuts first and also added about 1/2 cup chocolate chips. Next time I will try reducing the sugar b/c the sweetness almost overwhelmes the taste of the pignolis and I don't want to give up the chocolate! Great recipe! Read More

This is a wonderful pie! Easy & quick. I substituted half the sugar with Splenda and half the butter with Conola butter. It is still sticky & tasty! Thanks! Read More

This is super simple easy and delisioso. I did as others suggested and pre-toasted the nuts but everything else was as presented. I've made it four times this month for different guests and everyone loves it! Read More

I read all reviews and followed the updated 1/2 cup both white and brown sugar; 1 cup toasted pine nuts doubled the heavy cream to 2 TBSP. This is easy and it's great. Read More
