"My whole family loves this pie. Wonderful caramel and pecans!!!!"
"This pie is the bomb!! I won first place in a pie contest with this recipe!! Easy pie dough recipe from seriouseats.com.....First time ever to leave a review....that's how good it was!!!"
"This pie is awesome! It's easy to make and will be quickly eaten up as the taste has a good balance between the pecans and caramel. I made this for Thanksgiving and have already made 3 more for holiday events."
"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 best pecan pie I've made so far! I loved the caramel filling! This was the first dessert devoured at a recent Thanksgiving dinner!"
