"I loved this recipe. I actually think it is better than real pecan pie. To make it look prettier I added a layer of halved pecans on the top."

"this fooled even my pickest eater, my uncle. i sprinkled brown sugar coated grapenuts on top at the end of the baking time to give it a crunchy nut texture. i make this every Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner now. thank you for the recipe."
