pecans pie

My dad loves pecan pie.  Over the years, I have tried many different recipes to find the perfect one.  This is a classic pecan pie with recipe from Cooks’ Illustrated:

There are also many variations to the classic pecan pie.  My favorite variations are:

1)  Tyler Florence’s chocolate and bourbon pecan pie:  http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/tyler-florence/bourbon-and-chocolate-pecan-pie-recipe.html

2)  Ina Garten’s Maple pecan pie:  http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/ina-garten/maple-pecan-pie-recipe.html

Too lazy to make a pie?  Sometimes, it’s just easier to buy one.  My favorite pecan confection is the pecan tart by La Boulange via Starbucks.  It’s delish.
