This pie was very good, and I didn't have any trouble with the filling. Nice and gooey with plenty of pecan flavor.

The caramel and pecans are a match made in culinary heaven! I forgot to toast the pecans the first time I made it, but the pie was still delicious.

This pie is awesome! It's easy to make and will be quickly eaten up as the taste has a good balance between the pecans and caramel. I made this for Thanksgiving and have already made 3 more for holiday events.

I'm not a pecan pie eater, but after this recipe came out in the magazine and I showed it to my husband I have had to make it for every holiday since then. My sis in law says it isn't a holiday meal if I don't bring this pie. It is very easy to make and my husband says the toasted almonds is what really sets this pie apart from other pecan pies.
