Today is my Mommy’s Birthday.
My plan was to sneak home and surprise her, but she decided to go out of town… Oh and flights were SUPER expensive because of Labor Day.
So, I will not be able to see her. This recipe is as close to her as I can get. I get a little sad around holidays and birthdays. I miss seeing them whenever I want.
Making food that reminds me of home always makes me feel a little better. My mom makes the best Pecan Pie. Thanksgiving hasn’t been the same without her Pecan Pie. Sunday, I was just planning on making regular pecan pie to ship home to her. I started looking through the pantry and realized I have a bunch of chocolate and decided Chocolate Pecan Pie would be the perfect birthday treat!
I used my Mommy’s recipe for the Pecan Pie, minus the Corn Syrup, and just added the Beer and Chocolate. They turned out great, even without Corn Syrup.
I substituted Brown Sugar for the Corn Syrup. I don’t know if that is an acceptable substitute but it worked.
They tasted like mini brownies.
Happy Birthday Mommy!
I hope you have a great day. I know these pies are not the same as a hug, but it’s as close as I can get.
