The Best Chocolate Pecan Pie with Bonus Coffee Topping | The Cupboard Drawer Recipe Book
Pecan Pies have always been a fall favorite of mine. Thanksgiving, Christmas, or New Year’s Day just don’t seem complete without one of these pies on the dessert table. So straight from the Cupboard Drawer Recipe Book, here is one of my Favorites just in time for the coming Fall and Holiday Season. The Bonus Coffee Topping is a nice alternative adult style topping that will enhance that after dinner cup o joe. The coconut option is my personal addition as I have always liked to experiment in the kitchen and I think it really enhances the texture and flavor. However you choose to do it, Do Enjoy!
