4 Ingredient Pecan Pie

I’ve loved Pecan Pie since the first time I had the pleasure to try it in an American style diner. I also loved making it but I’ve dedicated my life to creating baking recipes like an engineer (engineers are trained to optimize absolutely everything…haha). So I figured there must be a way to optimize making a Pecan Pie.

My test audience had a lovely comment: “Thank you for this wonderful experience”. There’s something really moving about that. Dessert at it’s best is not just a dessert – it is an experience.
