    This recipe needs to updated on the website or taken down immediately. I just used the original recipe and made three pies. I did not read the comments first to see that the butter should be cut down to 1/2 cup. All three pies are runny and look disgusting. All of those ingredients wasted plus the fact I have nothing for our Holiday Bake Sale. It's very frustrating. Please fix this before someone else adds double the butter.

    This pie is my family's favorite! However it's only 1/2 c butter . I've been waiting for the op to come back and change it. So hopefully I save at least person from runny pie

    Excellent pie. I did use pecans, because I had those on hand but I don't think that hurt anything :)

    This pie is a winner! It is rich, but delicious - like a chewy cookie bar. It travels very well, freezes well, and always sells out at our school's bake sales. I love how anything can be tossed into the basic recipe and it always comes out just right.

    Very tasty. I made this for a charity auction and it brought in $75. Tastes like a big chewey cookie.
