agosnell7447 October 28, 2012 COMMENT: I made this recipe after I could not find my usual one. It NEVER SET! I baked and baked and baked it. It stayed runny in the middle. When I let it cool, more runny than when I put it in the oven!

Made this for years, always good. Start at 40 minutes because the time for baking depends on the oven. Keep in the center rack and watch to make sure the crust edges do not brown too much. I always add extra pecans, more than a cup. Add the cup as directed but the top of the pie will have empty spots so cover these spots with pecans, probably another 1/2 cup or so will cover the top. Makes for a better looking pie. Also good if you use whipped creme that has cinnimon mixed in it first.

We make this pie every holiday season...usually about 5 or 6 times. It has never failed! My grandmother gave my mother the recipe who then gave it to me when I started my own family...WE ALL ADORE IT. Countless people have asked for this recipe. As far as the runny pies go...I guess just bake it a little longer, sometimes mine appears to not have quite "set" yet. So I keep it in just a tad longet than recommended. You will not be disappointed if you make this pie!

Joann November 26, 2010 COMMENT: Mine was runny yesterday for the first time in forever. Don't understand why.
Guest Foodie November 25, 2010 COMMENT: Year after year my husband and I have tried to make this pie.We follow the recipe exactly. Every year it is runny. We have moved so it hasn't been baked in the same oven all this time.
I keep reading about how wonderful it is. Has anyone else had a problem like this and what could be the reason ours is runny?

BEST pecan pie ever....LOVED by all and always a hit!!
South Texas August 3, 2009 COMMENT: The recipe as published by Dear Abby uses corn syrup. I used this recipe and it did not set at all. It came out more liquid than it went in. Needless to say it went in the trash!

I have been making this pie for years and I always get the compliment that I "make the BEST pecan pie"!
Iowa November 20, 2007 COMMENT: I think they forgot the corn syrup? Rather important to hold it all together.
CDKitchen Staff Reply: This version uses 1 cup sugar instead of 1 cup corn syrup.

Found this in a newspaper several years ago. It is the ONLY pecan pie my husband wants me make! Big hit for holiday dessert buffets.

This recipe brings accolades every time I make it. The non-use of corn syrup is a bonus.
