Thanks to Sharon, from Simply Southern, for her pick of Bourbon Bread Pudding, found on page 407 of Dorie Greenspan's Baking from My Home to Yours cookbook. There are a whole lot of people who were looking forward to making this, Sharon, so they were thrilled. You can find this recipe here, or buy the book and you can have them all!
That said, I did not make that recipe this week as this is not a bread pudding eating household. Sorry, we are just not fans. Rather than just pass this week, I decided to do a rewind of a TWD recipe that I had missed in the past for one odd excuse or the other. This week I made My Favorite Pecan Pie, page 327, which had been chosen by Brina and you can find the recipe for that here.
I'm on a pie making kick. February is National Pie Month and I have been making a mini pie a day for the past 7 days, so when I decided I was going to do a rewind, I knew it was going to be some sort of pie. I have to say that my pie making skills are getting better each day. I still cannot do a Dorie's crust, as you can see, the edges of this one fell apart out of the pan, so I'll work on it. My regular pie crust handles much better for me for some reason, but I think the taste of Dorie's is excellent, so I must hone my skills so that I can handle this one as well.
There is no doubt that the pies are edible as they have been disappearing. At any rate, one of Mark's favorite pies is the Pecan Pie, so I thought I would give Dorie's recipe a try for him to see if it was a palate-pleaser. It was. I think he would be happy to eat this whenever I had the urge to make it. It has chocolate in it, so it pleased the chocolate lovers around here as well. Definitely a repeat.
