The Thanksgiving dessert table would not be complete without pie or two, and methinks some of the leading classics are undoubtedly Pecan Pie and Pumpkin Pie- yes, pies of legend indeed. This year, my son said the pecan was the best pie he has ever eaten and I think this Irish Whiskey Chocolate Pecan Pie recipe is a keeper. I substituted honey for the corn syrup in order to get a floral sweetness and the Irishman Whiskey just brought out a balance to the intensity.
The classic pumpkin pie also made it to our family Thanksgiving table today. The only twist we add is some finely grated orange zest as I have discovered that this little citrus addition really adds character and complexity to the pie.
This Thanksgiving we are all thankful for family, health and being together. I am also thankful for my business, doing what I love and for the lovely and dedicated followers of my blog…yup, that’s you dear reader. You are the best!
