Underneath a golden layer of pecans, a sweet and sticky filling awaits. A dollop of whipped cream or a scoop of ice cream is an ideal topping.

Cook's Notes

A 9-inch springform pan will work just as well; just trim the edge of the dough to 1 1/2 inches all around.

    Due to a couple of other reviews I made this in a ceramic pie plate to avoid the possibility of a leak. The pie was excellent. I have never cared for pecan pie before due to the highly sweet taste. This pie is just right...not too sweet and very attractive to serve. Also, love being able to make ahead of time without the worry of it developing a soggy crust. I did make one change in the ingredients. Instead of 2 TBSP of fresh lemon juice I used 1 TBSP each of fresh lemon juice and Bourbon. Everyone loved it and have had several requests to make this pie again. I have a feeling it has become a family holiday tradition.

      Ingredients should read TSP instead of TBSP

    This is the only pecan pie recipe that I actually like. Visually it's beautiful and it's not too sweet. Plus it's a really easy recipe.

    Probably the fault of your sprinform pan... Try a Kaiser Springform pan

    This pie leaked all over the cookie sheet when I made it. I'm very disappointed especially since I used so many nuts that are now wasted on a dry pie.
