Chocolate Bourbon Pecan Pie @ Nola
Pecan pie is pretty good without any enhancements beyond the classic recipe. But that hasn’t stopped some new inclusions from being successful. Notable among these is K-Paul’s pecan and sweet potato pie. Also good is this over-the-top take on the idea, from the fertile minds in Emeril’s pastry departments. The Bourbon sounds good. So does the chocolate. The sweet potato ice cream fills all the remaining gustatory room. It all comes together in a very rich dessert which you will have a hard time refraining from finishing.
