Pecan pies are good, delicious even. However, the tastiness is partly due to the less than health ingredient corn syrup. I decided to try and replace the syrup with a healthier more flavourful ingredient – chestnut puree. It worked as expected – less sweet with a balanced pecan and chestnut flavour. Even Julia who does not like chestnuts enjoyed it.
I’ve made this apple pie at least ten times in the last few months. It is extremely simple and everyone greatly enjoys it. Aside from the premade crust and apples or pears I simply add some sugar, cinnamon and butter.
