My mom has never been an avid baker, but what she made, when she would make it, was usually very good. She always had a problem with pecan pie, though. It was almost always runny. No matter how hard she tried, the center just would not set properly. One Thanksgiving, two of my cousins were staying with us, and mom was baking for the feast. She was determined to cook the pie so that it would not be runny. She was successful. The pie set so well, that we had to use a butcher knife and a hammer to break it apart. Instead of chewing it, we had to suck on it like hard candy. I don't think she has even tried to make a pecan pie again!!

That's funny! I've made one of those pies, too.

The trick is to bake the pie until it is still a little jiggly in the center, and then it will set up a bit better as it cools. Pecan Pie is worth the trouble!
