Paula Deen has three pecan pie recipes that complement Thanksgiving dinners: Bourbon Pecan Pie, Chocolate Pecan Pie and Mystery Pecan Pie. All three recipes receive high marks for taste and ease of baking from other bakers who have made the pies.
The first of Paula Deen's pecan pie recipes is her Bourbon Pecan Pie. This recipe combines bourbon, dark corn syrup, butter and sugar with pecan halves in a deep-dish pie shell. The rich flavors of this dark pie offer a satisfying end to Thanksgiving dinner.
For chocolate lovers, Paula Deen has created a Chocolate Pecan Pie recipe. In addition to corn syrup, sugar, butter and pecans, this recipe mixes semisweet chocolate with a splash of bourbon. An easy recipe to follow and make, the Chocolate Pecan Pie adds a sweet, decadent element to a traditional or modern Thanksgiving feast.
The Mystery Pecan Pie brings richness to a new level with a cream cheese layer nestled under the pecan filling. Vanilla in both the cream cheese mixture and pecan topping adds a sweet flavor to this non-traditional pecan pie. This Paula Deen creation is a new twist on a classic pie that satisfies pecan lovers and cream cheese fanatics alike.
