This is the treasured "Golden Oldie" that my grandmother made so often whenever we'd come to visit. Grandma grew her own pecans, and we never tried of cracking them and picking out the meat when we knew we'd be treated to her special pie! —Mildred Sherrer, Fort Worth, Texas

"An absolute favorite pie of ours!!! Perfect to make two smaller pies or make one deep dish pie! I usually do the deep dish so that I have more filling in my pieces of pie!!!! Yumm!"

"I took everyone's remarks to heart, and since I didn't want two pies.... I cut the recipe in half. The odd egg I simply broke into a cup, wisked it and measured out half. The other half I kept for a later, unrelated, use. Fabulous pie! I took it to an important potluck and my pie was a big hit. I had a little cherry pie filling left over from another recipe. I spooned a little on my piece and it was completely delicious. Not a bad addition, but the pie as is is great. And I don't like pecan pies......"

"This pie was very good, both my kids and my husband loved it. I followed the recipe exact, except I added more pecans to mine. The recipe allowed for me to make two 9 in deep dish pies."

"Great recipe but deep dish pie shells are a must,had enough filling to make 4 regular pie shells.Rather than throw away what was left I improvised & made a custard out of the rest!"

"This is a true combo pie! Part crunchy pecan pie combined with a silky custard pie. Yummy! Unlike any pie we had before. Did not have buttermilk on hand. Used cook's trick to combine a teaspoon of vinegar into whole milk. Tasted great!"

"Buttermilk pies are my personal favorite, so it was to no surprise that I loved this one also! They are so easy to make and always devoured every time I bring them somewhere."

"I don't like traditional pecan pie at all and only made this pie as it was requested by a guest. But it was DELICIOUS- not cloyingly sweet like the traditional pecan pie. Awesome! I would definitely make this more than just once a year at Thanksgiving. I might even try it without the pecans for a custard pie- the filling was that good."
