Personal Notes:
The best Pecan Pie I have ever made or had. Easy to make too;
Tip from Dear Abby; Original recipe stated that the pie should be baked 45 - 50 min. in preheated 350 gas oven. If an electric oven is used it may be necessary to add 15 - 20 minutes to the baking time. (Begin testing the pie with a toothpick after 45 minutes).
