Reviews forPecan Pie for Two
"This was excellent. The crust was quick and easy to make, and turned out rich and flaky. I found the oven temperature to be bit hot....next time I will bake at 350* for 25-30 minutes. I will be making this again for myself and husband. He was overjoyed at the prospect of pecan pie for a middle of the week treat!!"
"I like the fact that this makes two 4 inch pies but am leaving the flour out this time. I thought it did not add to the taste at all the first time I tried it and other recipes leave it out.Thanks though!"
