In fall or any time of year, this nutty, rich and delicious pie is one I am proud to serve. While it seems very special, it's a snap to make. —Becky Ruff, Monona, Iowa

I made this today to share with some friends and everyone loved it. The only change I made was that I substituted homemade brown sugar caramel for the store bought topping. Its the "easy caramel sauce" on the Pioneer Woman site, and it literally only takes five minutes to make. Just make sure to let it come to room temperature before letting it touch the eggs, and keep it a little on the runny side - it will thicken a bit as it comes to room temperature, and you don't want it too thick when you mix it with the eggs. The pie was great - a perfect blend of several wonderful tastes and textures. I give it five stars.

I followed the instruction exactly as written and it was honestly the worst dessert I've ever made. I was embarrassed when I sent it with my husband for his cookout and he told me it was awful. I tried it and I threw out the entire thing (6 pieces left). I wish I could give it 0 stars.

My pie seemed a little eggy. What size eggs did you use ? I also had to bake 15 min. Longer to bake the center.

I made four pies for this past Thanksgiving weekend to be served with three different gatherings - husband's family, my family, and our church family. Each location this pie was an absolute hit, and everyone wanted the recipe. I saved a wee bit of time and used Marie Callender's frozen deep dish pie crusts. They worked beautifully, but do note they are 8oz crusts and not 9oz. I wasn't able to use all the caramel mixture on the pie - in fact, 3 caramel mixtures were plenty for the 4 pies. It didn't affect the taste at all. This pie was amazing. Even my non-dessert eating husband tried some and really liked it!
