    What type of uncooked pie shell do you use? Do you make your own or just buy one from the grocery store. Recipe doesn't explain this. Also, do you use white sugar, or brown sugar?

    I can't wait to make this for Thanksgiving (2012). Please tell me what type of sugar to use (white, brown or dark brown). Thanks Debbie!

    I have used this recipe a few times because my husband loves pecan pie. I want to make sure that I was using the right size eggs. Am I suppose to use large eggs or what?

    I had never made a pecan pie before, but I have eaten many :). This recipe was really easy to make, looked beautiful and tasted incredible! It was a hit at Thanksgiving dinner. Next time I may add a tad more vanilla....

    I am so glad you posted this one! Most recipes say blend everything together and then put in the piecrust -- that is the reason it doesn't set up. My mother's recipe is similar to yours. Key is cooking the butter, sugar and syrup on top of the stove until thickened slightly, then adding the other ingredients and putting in the pie crust. Thanks for the great recipe! Debbie

    Hi Debbie! I just made your pie and I can't wait to dig in!! It was so much fun - as this was my first homemade pecan pie. I took a picture of it, but I wanted to ask your permission before I just threw it up there. Would it be ok if I posted the pic?
    Thanks for sharing a great recipe! Definitely a 5!! :)

    OMG, this was easy, and my son was so proud when he finished making it. In our family, it is a tradition, that the men make the pies. When my Daddy passed away, my son decided to pick up where he left off. So thank you for helping us keep the tradition alive! Kilby
