"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 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."

"I made this for Thanksgiving for my guests and they all loved it."
"And no, I don't pre-bake the shell."
"We've made this every Thanksgiving since the recipe was first published! None of us like traditional pecan pie, but the caramel flavor is fantastic and helps cut the sweetness. I've had more requests for this recipe than any other pie - everyone raves about it!"
"Do you pre-bake the pie shell?"
"This pie is SO good! I have to make it every Thanksgiving. It just oozes with caramel. I've never been a fan of regular pecan pies, and I've tried other variations of pecan pie that uses chocolate, and this recipe is by far, THE best pecan pie. It's so rich and delicious, and easy!"
"Wow, This is one of the best pies I have ever made. I have now made it several times and my guest just go crazy over it, not to mention my boyfriend and kids just love it.. it is a must try and a keeper for sure..."
"First time I make pecan pie, this is my boyfriend's favorite pie. Both him and my daughter loved it! I'm definitely making it again! It was a big hit at the Christmas party!"
"Have made it twice this week due to the demand for more. Really good!!"
"Absolutely delicious, and so very easy to make. This is going to become a holiday staple. I might make another for Christmas."
"I've made this pie several times and it is a family favorite now. We have it every year at Christmas now. A bit rich but I've never had a better pecan pie!"
"This pecan pie really is the best. I've made different kinds of pecan pies--the traditional, ones with chocolate, etc., and this one is by far my favorite. Ever since I discovered this recipe, I've been making it every year for Thanksgiving. It's SO easy, and it's really good and rich. I LOVE it! Definitely gotta try this!"
"This is the 3rd time I've made this pie - the kids beg for it! I'm happy to oblige since tomorrow is Thanksgiving and I don't really care for pumpkin pie"
"Quick and easy version of pecan pie minus the traditional corn syrup! Aside from the caramels, most cooks have these ingredients in their cupboards. Taste is good and unique. I'd make it again."
