This past weekend we celebrated Dad’s birthday at my sister Pat’s house, as we have for the past few years. This year she asked if I would bring dessert (kinda a no-brainer). After a quick Facebook vote, I decided to make my Baileys Chocolate Cheesecake. Then of course I get to thinking, what if that isn’t enough? What if it’s a fuller than normal house? Pecan Pie. Yum! I had a ball of my All Butter Pastry in the freezer (the one made with Greek yogurt that is oh so good!), so I was half way there.
I love trying out recipes from my Complete America’s Test Kitchen Tv Show Cookbook 2001-2011
and decided to give their Pecan Pie recipe a go, with just one little addition… Scotch whiskey Following their method gave me my best pecan pie to date. The pecans were definitely the star, sweet but not overkill and the crust stayed nice and crispy, even on the bottom!
