Trisha Yearwood's clunker of a pie (part 2)

When I pulled the pie out of the oven, I thought, “Wow! This is the most beautiful pecan pie I’ve ever made.” That should have been ominous, but I didn’t think anything more of it until it came time for dessert. The pie was very hard to cut. The topping had almost a praline candy quality. Suddenly it hit me … I had put the butter in the microwave to melt it and forgotten to take it out to add to the filling. I opened the microwave door, and there sat a huge bowl of butter.

What now? We still laugh about that pie.
