When it comes to Pecan Pie you’ll find recipes all over the internet. My variation with a little bourbon in the filling and rich chocolate ganache will make this pie perfect for every occasion.
I used a 9-inch deep dish ceramic pie plate for this pie, but I think it would make a great pecan tart, just with a lighter chocolate topping. But whichever way you make it, I know you’re going to love this old time favorite, I can tell you it’s going to make another appearance on my table in the very near future.
Most people think of pecan pie at Thanksgiving but it’s a delicious dessert that can be served any time of the year. This rich dessert is a southern classic and was made when pecans were plentiful usually around October -November.
And that my friends is why you usually see pecan pie at Thanksgiving.
