I am not really fond of most pecan pies as they always seem too sweet. I found this recipe somewhere and I always use it when making pecan pie. Much better than the pecan pie filling from Williams Sonoma for sure. And there is a variation for my Royal Hawaiian Pie posted at the bottom of this recipe.
