Reviews for Texas Pecan Pie
"Always turns out perfect. It's the best pecan pie I've ever tasted!"
"Best Pecan Pie I ever made. I did use a store bought pastry crust to save time. The filling set up perfectly and the light syrup added just the right sweetness."
"I had to make it into 2 small pies. I believe it is for a deep dish if you don't make your own."
"This is a very good and fairly simple recipe. I would use a frozen pie crust if I was in a pinch for time. Other wise very good recipe."
