This is without question the best pecan pie I have ever tasted!! Having the chopped pecans on the bottom of the pie gives the pie more tooth and helps to cut the overbearing sweetness of most other Pecan Pie Recipes. The filling is so smooth with a perfect texture. That makes for a wonderful contrast to the meaty firm top layer.
