  • I use a frozen deep dish pie crust for my pies, but you could absolutely make your own and bake this in your favorite pie plate.
  • I prefer to chop the pecans in my pecan pie, but halves are good, too!
  • This pie is wonderful with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Yum!
  • Add 1/4 a cup of chocolate chips to the pie filling to make it a chocolate pecan pie.
