It is exactly what the recipe reflects - super sweet and heavy. It was a very pretty golden brown. I am giving it two stars because I think the result is true to its description. I think I just need a bit more complexity of flavor than sugar and butter. Read More

This is one of my favorite pie recipes since finding it posted on this site a few years ago. I have made it with dried cranberries or chocolate chips pressed on the bottom. My mother-in-law says it tastes like a pecan pie without the pecans. I might try the previous reviewers suggestion and put pecans on the bottom next time then it would be like an upside down pecan pie. Read More

This recipe was very good. When I was a little girl my grandmother used to make this pie. This recipe is very close to hers. I made this pie for Thanksgiving and it was a big hit. A couple of days later I made it again adding a cup of pecans on the bottom of pastry it was also a hit!!! charlotte lansing mi Read More

My stepson had been asking for this pie since he ate one at a friends. I found this recipe and told him to go to it!! He did a great job and it turned out just as it should very easy to make. He commented it was a bit to "eggy" tasting and next time he would probably cut down the number of yolks to 2 and the rest egg whites. We will see but all in all very easy. Read More

Made this pie for Thanksgiving. My Dad who has a super sweet tooth loved it. Don't make it if you are diabetic which I am. This is like the southern Chess pie but without the cornmeal and the pecans. Read More
