You probably wouldn’t notice this unless I mentioned it, but I’ve slightly changed my recipe for Becca’s Bourbon Maple Pecan Pie. It is my favorite Thanksgiving desert, and this year it has only improved.
As I was making the pie, I was also catching up with my sister. She came down from New York very late Wednesday night with her boyfriend, so Thanksgiving morning was our first time to really gab. Of course sometimes it is hard to pay attention to recipes, even ones that you made up yourself, while chatting with your favorite (and only) sister.
The outcome of this distraction is that I doubled the amount of salt that was supposed to be added to the recipe. It didn’t call for much, only 1/4 tsp, which I made into 1/2 tsp. I continued on with the recipe, trying not to hyperventilate, and once I added all the other ingredients, it tasted quite good. It added a bit more depth to the filling to balance out the sweetness. My husband even said that this pie was better than last week’s, and he didn’t know about the mistake!
Isn’t it wonderful when accidents turn into tasty concoctions?
