When my fiance first made this for me, I declared it to be the best pie ever! Creamy chocolate combines with crunchy nuts in a great, gooey filling. —Tanya Taylor, Cary, North Carolina

"This was a typical chocolate pecan pie -- always delicious! I did not care for the taste of bourbon however."

"This pie was good--made three this weekend. However, I don't like to the taste of the bourbon, so when I made the pie again, I substituted a little white corn syrup, a tsp. of vanilla, and water for the liquor. I also prefer not so much dark sugar/syrup, so I used light brown sugar. This is a keeper!"
