Recipe Comments & Reviews

This is a super easy recipe to make BUT it yielded so little filling that the 9 inch pie plate was only half full. The finished pie looks less than generous. Also, the cooking time can be reduced given how little filling there is. Will, taste test it on Xmas Day.
Extremely easy to make. My family loved it!!!!
I looked for a pecan pie recipe with less sugar than most. Tried this one and will never use any other recipe again. Only thing different is that I used a cup of coarsely chopped pecans instead of halves.
My family loves this recipe. It's always the first dessert to go and someone always tries to steal a whole pie. I always have to make at least 2.
My Dad's favorite pie is pecan. He is from Oklahoma and loves Pecan Pie. He enjoyed this version very much.
I sent for this Land O Lakes pie receipe 35 years ago and still bake it every Thanksgiving and Holidays. Its the best!
I made this for Thanksgiving. My husband is very picky about his pecan pie. He doesn't like the overly sweet ones. He said that this was the best pecan pie he had ever eaten. All of the other guests loved it as well. I will definitely be making this pie every Thanksgiving. Very easy recipe. Excellent crust!
This was one of the best Pecan Pie recipes that i've tried, fast, easy and delicious.
