"OMG!!! This pie is so-o-o good!! I love chocolate!!! I cut the sugar to 1 cup, increased the cocoa to 5 Tablespoons. and added 3/4 cup of pecans!! I also put strips of aluminum foil around the edg..." See morees of the crust to keep them from getting brown too quick. I baked it for 1 hour at 325 degrees. No offense to anyone, but some of the expert cooks said they could not get the pie to set! I followed the directions of another poster and it turned out perfect...no problem setting!! This is what 'Lillithmaxium' said on Dec. 20, 2009: (The flavor is wonderful, however I think the lower reviews could be because some cooks are unaware of proper custard/homemade pudding-type pie preparation. The ingredients should include instructions for tempering the eggs). I did exactly as Lillithmaxium instructed, and no problem setting! Mix all ingredients (EXCEPT the eggs and pecans) and stir over medium heat until the chocolate is blended. In a separate bowl stir the eggs, while stirring the eggs, slowly add 1/2 cup of the hot pie mixture to the eggs to gradually even the egg temperature. Now pour the egg mixture into the remaining pie mixture, continue to stir, It starts getting thicker almost immediately. Add the pecans, then pour into the pie shell. I used deep dish. Let the pie set to cool for about 1 hour before cutting. I hope I explained this where it made sense. I hope some of the other cooks will try this wonderful pie again...it's really simple and sets perfectly!"
"Eww, eww, eww. I had such high hopes for this pie. I followed the recipe exactly & it was inedible. The pie filling was so greasy & the pie would not set. You can even see the greasiness in the photos..." See more! Sad. If I attempt to make this again I will omit the 1/4c of melted butter. Just remembering my first bite makes me shudder. I feel a little out of place because everyone just raved about this pie in the reviews. I never leave baaad reviews, but I just needed to say something."
