    I didn't have sour cream so substituted with greek yoghurt. After reading comments about a runny mix I used 100gr glucose syrup and 100gr syrup (instead of 200gr syrup) and mixture did set well. Next time I'll use more pecans - maybe another cup for extra crunch.

    this looks wonderful!

    The taste is wonderful, but the consistency was like a caramel sauce with a crispy topping after 30 minutes. It also did not set in the cold. Made the mistake of taking the vanilla bean literally for the paste and had put an entire bean in, not a good idea..maybe add this for the inexperienced, scrape the vanilla out of the bean...used gluten-free flour for the pastry with half a teaspoon of xanthan. Would like to make it again, but don’t know how to get it to set...baking it for longer?

    So delicious! Found the pastry quantity on the small side for my tin but just made it stretch. Might try roasted pecans next time.

    Fantastic recipe. Works well, looks fabulous and tastes great.
    Easier to serve if made the day before.

    Fantastic recipe!
    I made it gluten free by switching flours and adding about 1 tsp of xantham gum to the base.
    Base was a bit sticky and hard to press into pan, but used baking paper to help.
    Very tasty. I even baked the last little bit of mixture (that didn't fit in the pie) in a mug by itself and it was so good with a dab of cream!
    Baked an extra 10 minutes and left in fridge overnight, then served room temp with whipped cream.

    Soooo good...I didn’t find it too sweet, and used vanilla bean paste in the base also. Everyone who tried it loved it...and so quick to make. I will definitely be making it again.
