Pecan Pie

I’ll confess and say I’m not a big dessert fan. It’s a shocker, but it’s true! I used to be, but over time as I’ve gotten older my palette has gotten more and more savoury. But, if there’s one dessert that I will always order if I see it on a menu, which is everso rare over here in Blighty, is Pecan Pie. I love Pecan Pie so much, it’s…

Bakewell Tart

The Bakewell Tart, a variant of the Bakewell Pudding hailing from the Derbyshire town of Bakewell (sense a theme here?) is a quintessential British tart that sure does… bake well! Sorry. But it really is a delicious tart which has a beautiful frangipane filling with a layer of sharp jam and a beautiful sweet shortcrust pastry case. I encourage anyone to give this a go at least once!…
