Pecan Pie
November 20, 2010

5 stars. I don't even LIKE pecan pie but am now a fan after eating this pie. Our older son (38) was in for a visit, so I took a chance on this pie just for him since he loves pecan pie. After his first bite he said "I could eat that entire pie!" He loved it. My two concerns are that it is messy to make, and it took me longer than 10 minutes to prepare it--not complaining but mentioning that for planning purposes. When I was bringing the ingredients to a boil while stirring constantly, the sugar started sticking to the side of the pot, and I thought I was going to have a hot mess, but I persevered and I'm glad I did. Today I used a different recipe as a test (comparison recipe uses white sugar and pancake syrup) and, while it was quick and easy, it was a totally different pie--no comparison. The test pie tasted more like an old-fashioned chess pie with pecans added. I will definitely throw out any other pecan pie recipes and replace with this one. This pecan pie recipe will be the one that becomes a family tradition. Thanks for sharing this recipe, Linda!
