Pecan Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2011
Perfection. Didn't vary the recipe at all. There wasn't a crumb left in the pie plate after dinner. I only wish I had used a homemade crust instead of store-bought- this pie deserves the best.

German Chocolate Cake III

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2011
Very excellent cake. Not your traditional heavy chocolate cake- it's a tender, light cake that carries the rich, nutty icing perfectly! I toasted the coconut and pecans, and made 1.5 times the frosting, adding about 1 tbsp of dissolved cornstarch at the end of cooking it. But I had plenty of frosting left over, too. I think those who said it made too little were trying to ice the sides of the cake, which it doesn't need. The look of the layers of cake, frosting, and chocolate drizzle is beautiful- leave the sides exposed! It also creates the perfect balance of cake and frosting in every bite. Worth every minute of effort.
