Reviews for Honey Pecan Pie
"Everyone loved the pie. And it tasted great, but was I the only one that had to cook this pie for A LOT longer than the recipe called for? It says "till a knife inserted near the center comes out clean". This took at least another 40 or more minutes than the recipe suggested. I had to cover with aluminum foil, so the pecans wouldn't burn"
"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"
