So I found myself just sitting around one day, trying to think a really efficient way to get as many calories into my stomach as possible. The answer was obvious: chocolate pecan pie. I am a sucker for chocolate pie of any variety, and it is nothing but a bonus to have pecans added to this mix. So I decided to try out this recipe from the Cooking For Engineers website. It looked delicious and logical, both of which are qualities I highly prize in a pie.
I’m kinda serious about the “logical” part, actually. Below the pictures and descriptions, there is a handy dandy little chart that lays out in a very concise fashion the ingredients, what order they go in, and what is done with them. Takes up very little space and does away with all the pesky text and repetition that a traditional recipe has.
And speaking of logic, this pie is really burbley when it comes out of the oven! Bubbly *and* burbley, to be precise! So much so, that I just had to film it. Check it out!
Anyhow, the pie definitely succeeded in that whole “as many calories in as small of space as possible” thing. It was so rich and overwhelming, I had a hard time eating an entire slice of it! It was really tasty though. If I had actually had any vanilla ice cream on me (or rather, in the fridge), it would have complemented the pie fabulously.
