Hooray Pecan Pie season is here! Today we’re sharing our recipe for Pecan Pie. Can you guess our secret ingredient?
Yep, it’s coffee. We make our pecan pie with a touch of coffee. The brewed dark roast coffee mixed in with the pecans compliments their nuttiness. Also coffee rounds out the sweetness of sugar and syrup, so it’s not toothache sweet. Just a little bit of coffee will do. A dark roast like Twenty Strong is the perfect marrying ingredient, giving this pie that little extra something that makes you crave more!
