TWD: My Favorite Pecan Pie

This weeks Tuesdays with Dorie recipe is My Favorite Pecan Pie. Luckily the recipe was chosen in time for me to make this pie at Thanksgiving. Nathan's favorite pie is pecan pie so I was excited to give this one a try.

This recipe is different from the traditional pecan pie in that it uses less sugar and corn syrup and has the addition of espresso powder and chocolate. I omitted the espresso powder but was more than willing to give the chocolate a try.

The verdict? An immensely good pecan pie that will probably become my standard recipe.

Thanks to Beth of Someone's in the Kitchen with Brina for hosting this week. The recipe can be found at her blog.

Oh good. I'm glad you liked it because I am a slacker and am going to make it right now. I thought I'd check your opinion on it first though!

Hope you are enjoying the holidays!

Be safe and have fun!

Happy Baking!

Oooooh lucky Nate. I mean you know me and pecans (or any nuts) but I KNOW Nate and his pecan pie. Poor Trav didn't get pecan pie for Thanksgiving. Maybe I should try one for Christmas. We'll see how full of good cheer I am! :) Miss your cooking girl!

I love your holiday blog theme!

And your pie looks perfect - I wish I could say the same about mine.

The espresso powder makes it even better, but this pie is good no matter what.

Your pie looks great. Mine, not so much so. Tasted fabulous. Just didn't look pretty. :)
