    I have made this, and it was excellent. Thanks for a vegan pecan pie that lives up to any pecan pie.

    What a great pie! I’ve made it five times. I find the barley malt to give this a bitter note. Using agave nectar or Karo corn syrup worked much better. And at 45 minutes it starts to burn. Forty is plenty.
