Seriously Tim, you are bad, bad, bad for my butt and my waistline! But I LOVE you – don’t worry, I know Brian has first dibs and I kinda have a major thing with my Professor. And I’m quite grateful that I’m a 4 hour drive to Chicago or I’d be parked on your doorstep (in a good way, not a stalker way!) Instead, I shall settle for making the wonderful recipes I find on this site! Have a great weekend!
dang you are posting recipes that are seriously, right up my alley. i love pe-can pie (i always put the dash because people need to stress the first syllable, because in the south, that’s the right way and should be everywhere else ;) ) and cornbread and who knows what’s next! the kumquats seem like a great addition. what a great party!
I love that you plan in reverse. Nice to know I’m not alone:)
This sounds amazing. I’m never blown away by plain pecan pie so giving it a twist like this sounds enticing. There’s no sub for corn syrup is there? For some reason it makes me want to hurl…but imagine I have to get over it.
My father has a kumquat tree in his back yard, and every spring we fight with the local scavengers (opossums, raccoons, squirrels, humans, etc.), too see who can consume more. I’ve never thought to look up recipes for them ’cause they are so good straight from the tree, and aside from a kumquat preserve that his neighbor makes, I have never seen them used in anything. But this recipe is saying all the right things to me. Let the romance begin!
What a great looking pie! I tried maple pecan pie for the first time last year. it’s not a traditional food here in New Zealand but my friend made it for a dinner party. loved it. Thanks for the recipe!
Tim, if you’re ever looking for a Southernish layer cake, I highly recommend the Paul Prudhomme’s Roasted Pecan Cake or his cocunut cake. They can both be found in Paul Prudhomme’s Family Cookbook. Not too sweet, but showstopping and full of flavor. Also a great pecan pie with pecan butter.
