Absolutely delicious! However, found that I had more egg&corn syrup mixture than the pie shell could hold. Next time, I would only use 3/4 of the cream cheese mixture so I could get more of the other in. Also, it doesn't specify (and for those of you like me who may want everything spelled out), do not bake the pie crust first - use an uncooked crust. One more thing, serve cold - the day after baking is GREAT!!! WE ALL LOVED IT.

The first time I made this I was a little skeptical. I love pecan pie and wasn't sure how it would turn it. When I started mixing the cream cheese and other ingredients it was really think. I've never seen cream cheese be used with out any eggs. I had also used dark corn syrup rather than light, but it actually turned out pretty good. A little bit of FYI: the cream cheese comes up to the top so don't be surprised if your pie looks a little puffy. Also don't put too much syrup into it 'cause it'll overflow and cause a big mess.

I hate to give such a low rating, and I realize I'm in the minority here, but I disliked this pie. I mean, I tried a slice warm and it was not good, so I put it in the fridge overnight thinking maybe it would be better cold. Nope There was no sweetness- I mean none. I was expecting a cheesecake type layer topped with pecans and a custard, but the cream cheese rose to the top and mixed with everything else, and didn't taste anything like a cheesecake. Also, the edges of my crust burnt, but the bottom stayed soggy- probably due to the cream cheese/custard glob. Real pecan pie and real cheesecake are 10x better.
