Reviews for Caramel Pecan Pie
"The caramel and pecans are a match made in culinary heaven! I forgot to toast the pecans the first time I made it, but the pie was still delicious."
"My whole family loves this pie. Wonderful caramel and pecans!!!!"
"I'm not a pecan pie eater, but after this recipe came out in the magazine and I showed it to my husband I have had to make it for every holiday since then. My sis in law says it isn't a holiday meal if I don't bring this pie. It is very easy to make and my husband says the toasted almonds is what really sets this pie apart from other pecan pies."
"The filling curdeld and was runny."
"I made this pie and added choc chips and woodford reserve bourbon. It was great. I will be making this again for New Year's."
"Excellent, easy...even for someone who can't make pie!"
