Tuesdays with Dorie (on Saturday!): Dorie’s Favorite Pecan Pie

dorie's favorite pecan pie

Pecan pie is certainly one of my favorites, so I thought I’d give Dorie’s version a go for Christmas dinner.  Dorie’s Favorite Pecan Pie has a couple of unusual twists– chocolate, cinnamon and espresso powder.  (My one twist was to use golden syrup in place of the corn syrup.)  This was a big hit, especially with a little bit (or a lot, as the case may be) of whipped cream.  Not too sweet, and not too gloppy either, if you know what I mean.  Next time I think I’ll experiment with leaving out the chocolate, keeping the cinnamon and espresso, and see what I think about that.

For the recipe, see Baking: From My Home to Yours by Dorie Greenspan or read Someone’s in the Kitchen with Brina, as it was Beth’s choice for TWD this week.  Don’t forget to check out the TWD Blogroll!

  1. Hi I just discovered pecan pie recently . I love it I just posted a recipe which uses golden syrup and I love it 🙂 this one looks delicious.

  2. Pie looks quite appetizing. I was thinking of the opposite–leaving out the cinnamon and espresso although I love all those flavors. It may be another year before I’m up for pecan pie again though. You?

  3. Your pie looks beautiful! My pecans all sunk to the bottom.

  4. Ciao ! I couldn’t bake this tart but yours made me decide to try it even if late ! Baci and happy new year !!

  5. This is absolutely yummy!

    Have a wonderful new year ahead!

  6. What a delicious combination of flavours. I can’t say I remember seeing this recipe. Must definitely check. What a great pie for Christmas!

  7. Your pie looks beautiful! Wish mine had been that pretty. Good flavor, just not pretty. 🙂

  8. I did the opposite – left out the cinnamon and espresso but kept the chocolate. I thought it was great, and I would have been just as good without the chocolate, I think.

  9. Your pie is beautiful. I love the angle of the photo. Glad this was hit too. Happy New Year!

  10. Steph,

    Merry Holidays, all the best. xxoo Lauren

  11. I’ve been wanting to try this recipe for awhile. It seems like a recipe that’s not as cloyingly sweet as most pecan pies.

  12. Looks fantastic! We really loved this one a lot.
