As for the flour/butter alteration dispute, it is how you add it that will make the difference in the result. I dissolved the flour in the melted butter before mixing into the rest of the ingredients and my pie was velvety rich, smooth and delicious. If you want to impress them at Thanksgiving, this is the one!

Wow - no wonder all the reviews for this recipe were so positive!!! Made this last night. Following the suggestion of another reviewer, I added 1/4 cup of butter and 1 tablespoon of flour. This is truly the PERFECT pecan pie recipe! Cooked it for the exact time stated, and after it cooled it set perfectly. I will pass this wonderful recipe on to my daughter - Thank You!!!

I tried baking this, but I used some of the suggestions in the review box. DO NOT ADD BUTTER to this, it won't solidify if you do. The recipe was probably fine as is. It actually tasted very good, but the extra butter really ruined it. I would also suggest adding a lot more pecans. I can tell this recipe will actually taste good, though, so I'm going to make it again - I just won't add in any alterations from the comments ever again LOL.
