I know everyone loves pecan pie, but for my taste it’s a bit too gooey, sticky and corn-syrupy and could use a few MORE NUTS.
For years my Thanksgiving pie of choice has been this nut-dense, corn syrup-free CANDIED PECAN TART. If you like pecans, it’s one of the best foods on the planet.
And if you don’t like pecans, it’s equally good with walnuts, hazelnuts or a mixture.
I serve it with salted caramel ice cream but vanilla ice cream or just plain whipped cream nothing to sneeze at. —Gail Monaghan
