"I didn't care much for this one. Tried it out for thanksgiving and only had one piece eaten. I'll stick with more of the traditional pecan pie or even the caramel pecan cheesecake pies myself."

"I have also made this recipe; received it from my grandmother a long time ago. This won a prize for me also. I think I will make this dessert again soon."
