    The pie had me worried after seeing how not set it was after the first 25 min, however I trusted the recipe and I cooked it for another 25 as directed. The center was barely jiggly when I took it out and as it cooled it finished setting exactly as I expected. Great recipe.

    No trouble firming up and I used raw honey from my own hives. Great pie!

    Only The 2Nd Pecan Pie I've Ever Made Since My Mom Usually Makes Them, But Since It's My Husbands Fave I Decided To Make Him One For Work. Honey Is His Fave Also So Decided To Give A Try But Was Almost Finished Before I Read Results From Other Person About Boiling Honey. Was Realy Disappointed Thinking I Ruined This But It Turned Out Perfect In Fact It Was Probably More Firm Than When I Made It From Kero Syrup. My Mom Who Is A Pro At Them would Be proud. Very Easy And Delicious.

    This recipie missed a MAJOR step, BOILING the honey so it has the ability to firm. I have never made this before and I trusted the fact that the poster was from Lousiana which as far as I am concerned gave her credibility. My pie has been in the oven for voer an hour and is still liquid. I should have known better and checked this recipe against the others I waste of time and money!!!
