This is my husband's Grandma's recipe. She won the Pillsbury Bake Off in 1971 with this recipe and flew all of her kids to Hawaii (she and Grandpa were already there for the finals). She died in 1999 but would be tickled pink to know that so many are still enjoying the recipe!

Superb recipe !!! My husband's favorite pie is pecan pie, and he is also a "cookie monster". So, this recipe fills the bill twice. Very rich but absolutely delicious! Easy to make, too. Thanks for sharing such a great recipe.

This is almost the exact same recipe as the pillsbury bake off winner recipe except that recipe calls for 1/3 cup softened butter. It is good but like pecan pie is sweet. I agree more pecans would be good. Maybe as much as 2 cups. But they are tasty and easy.
