I had never had, or even tried to make pecan pie before......and it turned out awesome!


It looks like this every time. Perfect. I always tent the last 10 minutes though.

Very good! Next time I will only bake it for 45 minutes or so.

This was an excellent pecan pie recipe. I did add cocoa powder, which made it even better. I didn't have light karo syrup, so went with dark & it was still delicious. Next time, I'll only cook it for 45-50 minutes at 350, but then my oven is a bit temperamental. I'll fix this pie often. Thanks for the great recipe!
