Questions, Comments & Reviews


First of all, this pie is delicious! I used slightly toasted pecan pieces which heightened the flavor. I made the Black-bottom pecan cheesecake pie yesterday. I used my deep Pampered Chef stoneware pie dish to make sure I had room for all the ingredients. I followed the recipe exactly. After baking for 55 minutes and cooling a few hours, I cut into it and it "gushed" with liquid. The recipe did not say to refrigerate but I did after that surprise and today it had set up much better. The pie is delicious and I will make it again but I was hoping you could tell me what I may have done incorrectly. My oven temperature is correct and I am a very experienced baker.
