"Super! A very traditional pecan pie. I exchanged 1 tablespoon of butter in the filliing for 1 tablespoon of Tennessee Whiskey. I did the same in the topping, exchange some of the butter for whiskey. Top with fresh whipped cream - ahhhh heaven!!!"

"My family loves this recipe! The pie itself is delicious, but the candied pecans on top are my husband's favorite. I usually add some extra pecans in the topping so he can sample as I bake."

"This pie is always requested from my family, its delicious! However, I knocked off a star because it takes HOURS to cool and can become very watery and messy when putting it in the oven"

"I made this pie for Christmas dinner, my husband loved it!!!

He said it was the best he'd ever had. I did, however, make my own pie crust. Definitely a winner."
