TWD: Jazzed-up Pecan Pie
What a busy week this has been! Work took a back seat to baking and cooking for a change, and, hopefully, I won't pay for it later on.
On the schedule for Tuesdays with Dorie was My Favorite Pecan Pie, chosen by Beth of Someone's in the Kitchen with Brina. I saved this one for our Christmas day dessert
As a switch from a normal pecan pie, Dorie's version jazzes it up with additions of cinnamon, chocolate, and espresso. I watched the progress of the baking pie, and decided to add about 10 minutes to the total time so it would be cooked through. The end result was a perfectly baked pecan pie.
We enjoyed the pie, so I'm sure it will be considered for future holiday feasts.
Although, I have to say, as good as this pie is, and, as much as I like it, it still can't quite beat my favorite pecan pie.
