    This was absolutely the most delicious pecan pie and it was a HIT! I was extremely nervous as I am not a baker but everything from the Pate Brisee to the filling was so delicious and perfect! This takes time to make between patience and actual baking but it is worth every moment! I did read the other comments and as mentioned before the baking time did take approximately 10-12 minutes longer than the 90 minutes at 350.

    I am a pastry chef and the measurements of this recipe are off. When I mixed the filling it seemed too lose with too little pecans. I baked it anyway, trusting Martha, and it never set. Needless to say, something is off. Her pate brisee is great but her filling measurements are wrong.

    This is the most delicious pecan pie I've ever tasted. The first year I was in charge of the pecan pies, I made both this one and "Pecan Pie with Mrs. Kostyra" to see which recipe I liked better. Everyone at our large family Thanksgiving dinner preferred the Maple Bourbon one. One word of caution: The first time I made this, it came out perfect, but the second time I had a hard time getting the filling to "set." I think it is because I used a less viscous maple syrup the second year.

    eball14 - i make this every year for thanksgiving, and i personally have to often cook it an EXTRA 5 or 10 minutes to get the knife tip to come out clean. and that's in 2 different ovens in 2 different apartments...

    I've just tried making this and haven't eaten it yet but I think something went wrong. I did the 15 minutes at 400, then reduced it, and with about 35 minutes left, there was liquid all over the baking tray, the top looked too dark, and so I took it out! I'm hoping it will still taste nice, but I followed this recipe to a tee. Did others find you had to cook it shorter is my oven hotter than most?! I do think I'll try it again but will definitely keep a better eye on it.

    I made a small error and was rewarded: I placed the remaining pecans on top of the partially-baked pie after 20 minutes of baking had passed , rather than place them on top of the unbaked filling (I simply forgot to do it earlier). This exposed the pecans to direct heat as they sat firmly on top of the partially baked shell, and resulted in an almost-burned condition when the pie was removed. This almost-burnt flavor added some complexity.

    Dah-licious! I didn't have any bourbon in my pantry so I used plain ole wiskey. Marvelous. I poured a glass for myself and well, the whole pie was just that much more fun to make! The maple syrup adds an additional flavor that makes this pie a fattening joy to eat
