Notes

Some people like to reserve whole pecans to put on top of the filling. I don't do that because, in my experience, those whole, unsugared pecans burn long before the rest of the pie is cooked through.
I don't really know how some home bakers add those without burning them, unless they cover the whole pie with foil, in which case the pecans won't toast properly. I just had a thought, and that is that maybe they cook the pie for a while covered and then take the foil off for just the last 10 minutes or so. It's possible.
But I really don't care that much, and I like the pie better with all the pecans all covered with the rich, sugary filling anyway.
