    Every crappy one I have had had a group of people claiming its the best.

    "Best" and "pecan pie" are mutually exclusive.

    There might be a "least worst", but I'll never know.

    Pretty much all pie is good. Even that stuff right out of the bottle. My wife makes an awesome key lime from my limes, grahmcracker crust, etc. VERY good. Pumpkin is best cold for breakfast. Pecan, **** good, but almost too sweat, can you say High Fructose Corn Syrup?

    Don't really like the store bought "pies" that are all fake cream stuff. Publix makes awful pies and cakes.

    I agree. I like good quality coconut custard and key lime the best but can eat them all if they are well made. Having said that, I am not into cake that much unless it is a plain old pound cake with ice cream on the side.

    GOD! As a true Southerner I love pecan pie but a little goes a long way because it is so sweet and rich

    My wife does the same she cooks pecan pies for a lot of people. Last time I picked up the pecans for her at the sheller it was $48 just for the pecans. You figure 1 cup per pie that's a lot of pies. A#1 you know how many pecans trees are in Albany.

    They are getting higher since the Chinese have started buying them. My sister in law inherited a 50 acre grove that her uncle farms & everyone they get goes to China.
    That is a lot of pies, labor of love for her I'd bet..:)
    I am glad to only be a bird hunter with bird dogs...being a shooter or dog handler or whatever other niche exists to separate appears to generate far too much about which to worry.

    I love pecan pie....that and pumpkin pie. Don't much care for sweets in general but I can't pass up a slice of pecan pie. Good eats. That and raw almonds.
