I made this and it was too easy! The pie turned out so good a friend wanted some made. I think this is a different spin on pecan pie that is going to be on my menu through the year.

I have been making this recipe for the last 6 years and it's always the one that my kids would rather me make over any other pie. It's so rich and delicious.

This sounds sooooo good, but what is the mystery (cream cheese)? Once I make it I'll come back and post another comment.
