Reviews for Mock Pecan Pie
"I loved this recipe. I actually think it is better than real pecan pie. To make it look prettier I added a layer of halved pecans on the top."
"i would if i can find it again it had maple syrup in it. it was perfect"
"this fooled even my pickest eater, my uncle. i sprinkled brown sugar coated grapenuts on top at the end of the baking time to give it a crunchy nut texture. i make this every thanksgiving and christmas dinner now. thank you for the recipe."
