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.

I love love this recipe! Just a tip for some. I don't like thick pies so I make 2 pies with this one recipe and the always turns out perfect!

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.
