Delicious. Scrumptious. Rich. Nutty (obviously!) Tasty. I’m not a pecan pie expert and this is the first and only one I’ve made, but I think it is the best one! Made this for a birthday celebration and it was loved by all. Especially me! This is from smitten kitchen and Deb Perelman (the writer, cook and photographer) explained the greatness of this particular pecan pie in her blog. I didn’t add the chocolate layer option because the birthday girl is more of a nut or vanilla fan. But I imagine that would be very good. Also, I didn’t have the booze in the house but I will next time. I’m not re-writing the recipe because Deb wrote it out with terrific instructions. I will just repeat to not overbake this. I did a little. I did. It was still good, but you can do better.
You will need Lyle’s Golden Syrup which you can probably find at your grocery store but if not you can find it here. And vanilla ice cream for sure.
