Chocolate Bourbon Pecan Pie


Crust:  4    Good texture and taste.
Filling: 3    I did not like the texture of the chopped nuts compared to pecan halves. I didn’t
care for the chocolate and filling combination.
Overall: 3 

Oppps! I’m a day behind on my critic on the delicious pie with pecan and chocolate.
Crust:   Wonderful crunchy crust.
I’m feeling guilty, it’s like I  have a wonderful private baker, not only bake and delivered it too. The hard part is saving some for the mailman (Elisea’s husband is a mailman) coz it’s so good I want to eat it all. I love America over and over, why  not, there’s fresh baked pie.😋😋😋🤗🤗

This was an interesting pie.  I chose to put my pie on the fridge and tried it the next day.
Crust:    The crust was great.  It was flaky and not soggy on the bottom.  The topping                          tasted a little burnt to me.  It had a crunchy chewy texture — which I really liked                  and I could taste chocolate in it but it had burnt taste that kept coming through                       each bite and I felt it took away from the overall taste.
Filling:    The filling was a little skimpy in comparison to the topping.  The filing had great                      flavor and texture.
Overall: 3  I think I would had rated this pie to a 4 or 5 if the topping wasn’t over cooked.

Coming Soon!

Crust:    5
Filling:   5
Overall: 5
The chocolate bourbon pecan, is a 5***** to me. It’s perfect! I just wonder if that is how it supposed to be baked. I liked it the way it was bake,(personal taste)don’t know if the top can be baked a little bit softer. Soft or not it will taste the same now 5*****

Crust 3 – bottom soft, almost lost in the filling.
Filling 4-rich, dark, chocolatey, mild bourbon flavor, roasted pecans. Mmmmm.
Overall leaning closer to 4.

Crust: 2
Filling: 3
Overall Flavor: 3
Crust a little tough.  Too many nuts (did I just say that?). It felt like I had a mouth full of marbles. Skip the chocolate and double up on the bourbon! Still yummy but I would have tweaked it.

Crust:     1   The topping was too crunchy. I am with Doug, and think the pecans would                               taste better if they were halved and not chopped up.
Filling:    2    I wish there was more filling and less topping. I didn’t like the bourbon flavor.
Overall:  1+  I wouldn’t take seconds on this pie.
Next time I would use half pecans and not roast them ahead of time. I would also, experiment with different flavored extracts and ditch the bourbon. I would also try to figure out how to make more of the filling so it wasn’t so thin.


About Tammy

Blogging was not around the first 30 years of my life. Back in the old days, blogging review about something. Usually the person writing this review was a professional in their field. Since than blogging has changed how we share and learn information. Today bloggers are not necessarily professionals. They are usually ordinary people which want to share what they were impressed by or that have changed their lives. With trepidation I consulted my friends about being a blogger. Their first question was invariably, why? At first, I could not articulate why. Finally, I realize it was three events that happened to me within a month that led me to create this project. Please indulge me, and follow my train of thought as I attempt to connect the dots.create your own world. We've created a set of roleplaying First, over the summer I participated in a role play site. Within this site, there are hundreds of plots you can write for. Once you choose a plot you create a character profile. Then with other writers you collaborate on a storyline that supports the plot. I love this process. Not only did my writing improve, but fills a void I have when I’m not writing. Unfortunately, the story lines never last long enough and I’m left wanting more to write. Secondly, my husband believes we live on this vast farm. Through the years he has cultivate an enormous dwarf orchard which provides not only enough produce for us but also for ALL our neighbors, friends and family. The reality is we live on a normal size lot in the middle of a city. Nevertheless, we pick buckets and buckets of pears, cherries, apples, kiwis, plums and figs. Sadly, when I make pies from our abundance the only people around to eat it….is us. We honestly do not need the extra calories so I considered not baking any more pies. Than this project developed where I could share my pies. Thirdly, for the 3rd or 4th time I’ve watched the movie “Julie and Julia”. I have always marvel at how Julie makes herself this challenge of cooking every recipe (524 to be exact) from Julia Child’s “Mastering the Art of French Cooking." cook book all in one year. No matter her obstacles she preservers. For years I have secretly admired Julie. I’ve often wish I had the courage to do what she did. So because I don’t have enough to do in my life. Why not start a blog about something? After bouncing what seem like a million ideas I came up with this crazy project. A blog about pies. Tammy’s Pie Lab Sigh…… so my blog is about pies, pies and more pies. Here are my plans. I have picked the most unusually dessert pies I can find. As you can see this is not just a blog but also an experiment. I am going to cook one pie every week for a year. I have eight pie tasters that will critique each pie. To prevent any preconceived notions of how the pie should taste. I will withhold the pie’s name until after it is critique. Then I will post the history, the recipe, and the critiques of the pie. In addition, there will be some experiments, countless websites to explore and everything you wanted to know about pies and more.
