    Georgia Girl's Note:

    This is an unusual pecan pie because it uses only brown sugar--no corn syrup. This gives it a wonderful consistentcy, and this is my most requested dessert of all time. I always have to take 2 extras to family gatherings so everyone can take some home. I got the original recipe from my aunt, but I have added the cocoa, more pecans, more eggs, the alcohol and changed other ingredient amounts over the years, so I consider it my creation now.

      A terrific addition to my Thanksgiving repertoire! The chocolate flavor is very subtle and the amaretto and very soft (I didn't sift) brown sugar gave it a wonderful smoothness. I bought a 2 lb. bag of sugar, made sure it was very soft, with no lumps and just dumped it in instead of sifting. Turned out perfect in taste, although a bit brown so will probably bake just for only 30 min. next time - a definite keeper!

      I took this delicious pie to a friend's for Thanksgiving. My pie plate measured about 9.5 inches so I made 1/3 of the recipe plus a little bit more. The math become a little complicated, but it turned out well. I did overcook it a bit so the texture was fudgy, but it really tasted good. My husband gave this a big thumbs up!

      I've made this twice now but didn't review it the first time because I goofed and left the melted butter in the microwave until abut 15 minutes into the baking time. I belatedly mixed it in, but then wasn't sure how much longer to cook it. It was yummy, but the consistency was a little weird. The second time I came perilously close to forgetting the butter again. It might be helpful if in step 5 you listed the remaining ingredients. I only made one pie each time, using 2 1/4 cups of brown sugar since I had a large bag of brown sugar rather than the conveniently labeled 16 oz box. The Kahlua and chocolate combination is scrumptious and I'll defineitly make this pie again.
