Bake the Book: Jeffersonville Pie

Sweets Emma Kobolakis 3 comments

Pecan pie is almost as common as roast turkey on Thanksgiving. And yet it is often too sweet, too dense, or the crust too dry. The Hoosier Mama Book of Pie addresses these issues with a buttery crust, toasted pecans, and a bittersweet chocolate drizzle. More

Candy Corn Pecan Pie

Serious Eats cakespy 1 comment

The idea is simple: classic pecan pie, plus candy corn. The candy corn melts so beautifully into the corn syrup and brown sugar mixture that it must feel like it's coming home; it adds a nice, vanilla-y sweetness to the pie that will satisfy even the sweetest of tooths. More

Pie of the Week: Salted Chocolate Pecan Pie

Sweets Lauren Weisenthal Post a comment

This recipe, for my most favorite pecan pie ever, tastes like a delicious, gooey, crunchy turtle. It's filled to the brim with nuts and caramel custard, then topped with chunks of dark chocolate and finished with a sprinkle of sea salt. I don't care if the salted caramel trend has jumped the shark, to me this is pecan pie perfection. More

This pie ups the ante in the pecan pie game. It's full of a rich caramel custard and chock-full of pecans, with a healthy dose of chocolate to send it over the edge. With just a tiny hit of salt to balance out the sweet richness of the filling, this pie will be the one they talk about long after Thanksgiving. More

7 Pecan Sweets We Love in San Francisco

Sweets Carrie Vasios Mullins 1 comment

I'm happy to report that San Francisco isn't leaving pecans to the South. Life would be too sad without gooey, pull apart sticky buns and classic pecan pie. The bakers around here have clearly realized that pecans are the perfect fatty foil to extra dark chocolate as well as an excellent match for anything with caramel. From tassies to oatmeal bars, here are 7 of our favorite pecan sweets in SF. More

(Something Not Exactly Like) Derby Pie

Serious Eats Lauren Weisenthal 5 comments

This is as rich as pie gets. The creamy, sweet caramel custard is festively spiked with bourbon, and cut with toasted pecans and just enough dark chocolate to cut its sweetness. The addition of bourbon and chocolate transform a garden variety pecan pie into something more complex and special. Don't forget to add the salt—it's an important touch that helps highlight and balance the sweet flavors. More

Pie of the Week: (Something Not Exactly Like) Derby Pie

Sweets Lauren Weisenthal Post a comment

There used to be a humble neighborhood joint called Mara's Homemade in New York's East Village that served Bayou staples and barbecue. My husband and I visited it annually for shrimp and grits, gumbo, and ribs, which we'd wash down with hurricanes and Abita beers. And though we would be stuffed to the gills by the end of each epic meal, we could never say no to the offer of Derby Pie, which was loaded with buttery bourbon and caramel, pecans, and dark chocolate. It was one of the finest pies in New York City. With Mara's gone, I'm left to my own devices for my Derby Pie fix. More

While this pie—inspired by Count Karl Nesselrode, a Russian diplomat and noted gourmand of the 19th century—is served chilled, don't worry about catching cold: this pie is so rich and decadent, it's to keep you warm during the dull days of January. More

That's Nuts Lee Zalben 26 comments

Apples may get all the credit for being the "most American" of pies, but with pecans being the only tree nut native to North America, there's no reason we shouldn't all say "as American as pecan pie" now and again. The basic pecan pie recipe is pretty straightforward, but here are some ways you can change it up. More

When it comes to looking good, 1980s supermodel Carol Alt probably has a genetic advantage on most of us, but she attributes her age-defying beauty to the raw-food diet she's been keeping for years. Raw foodism is a diet based... More

Cook the Book: Sorghum Pecan Pie

Growing up, my sister always claimed to have room in her toes for anything sweet. I'm always wishing I had bigger toes (or at least a stomach to match my eyes) when it comes to dessert after a home-cooked Southern... More
