    Remember that country song "Heaven's Just a Sin Away"? That's what this pie made me think of. So rich, so wonderful, so sinful! And easy to make. This will be my signature pie to make for many family gatherings to come! By the way, I didn't change a thing.

    Way too rich for my tasting; however, the Thanksgiving guests LOVED it!!

    This pie is out of this world. Tasted it at a work function and everyone was raving about it. Cann't wait to make it myself.

    This is an outstanding recipe. Rich and chocolatey, and you definitely don't need a big piece. If you eat it with ice cream on top (decadence, I know), it tastes just like a hot fudge sundae. It's what I bring to all occasions now.

    This came out great! I used honey instead of corn syrup, and doubled the amount to 2 Tbsp. I made sure to get the brown sugar good and "wet" with the honey when mixing the nut mixture. It set up fabulously in the baking process that way. Enjoy!

    The topping part of this recipe needs some serious tweaking. I made this for a Thanksgiving Party and will not be taking it with me. It looks awful...like I poured brown sugar and nuts over the top without cooking it. I think I'll stick with my tried and true pie recipes (pretty much anything out of the Fannie Farmer Baking Book).

    This pie is perfect. I took the suggestion of the other reviewer to use honey instead of corn syrup and it was great. This one is a keeper, especially since it's so easy to make.
