Buttermilk Pecan Pie
This weekâ€™s Project Pastry Queen recipe comes from Mariana and itâ€™s the Buttermilk Pecan Pie. I have to tell you that I was pretty stoked about this one. I love pecan pie! Itâ€™s definitely my favorite holiday dish so how perfect is it that Marianaâ€™s choice fell on Easter? I waited until just yesterday to make the pie thinking Iâ€™d be able to share it for the holiday.
Itâ€™s just not a good pie. :( Well okay, itâ€™s just not a good pie for someone whoâ€™s used to (and loves) the traditional pecan pie. I had to Google pictures of buttermilk pecan pies when I pulled it out of the oven because I was sure Iâ€™d done something wrong. But nope, thatâ€™s just what they look like.
Where typical pecan pies are gooey and super sweet, this one is crumbly and not very sweet at all. I ended up covering the piece I tried in sweetened whipped cream which made it 100 times better.
If this sounds like your kind of pie, Mariana will have the recipe up for you.
