Pecan Pie with Salted Caramel

After some dissertation, I am once again back and will soon be able to get back to my regular posting schedule. Lots has been happening the past few months where I was mainly focusing a lot towards my growth in my work. Now that it has finally slowed down a little, I could breathe with ease and I feel like floating in the air too...dancing to every single upbeat Christmas song I hear and my personal favourite has to be the Jazz-Blues, Traditional Pop genre. I grew up listening to wonderful singers like Frank Sinatra, Barry Manilow, just to name a few. However, I do have a current personal favourite too. I have been hooked to this wonderful singer ever since his first album. Perhaps it comes as no surprise to my friends, that at this time of the year, I will be caught humming and tapping to the tune of Winter Wonderland, listening to the smooth-silky voice of Michael Bublé.

Since I'm in the mood for the holidays, let me present to you my all time favourite nutty PECAN PIE with SALTED CARAMEL is a classic. There may not be a lot of people around me know, that I have a soft spot for them. Just a slice of this luxuriously crunchy, caramelized aroma and taste pie is enough to make your knees wobble. Pronounced either as "pee-CAN" or by some as pee-KAHN", this is one Classic Pie that is perfect for the holidays. So start cranking up the oven peeps!

This PECAN PIE with SALTED CARAMEL is easy to bake. Almost quite fuss free, apart from just a little effort required to make a pie dough from scratch. There are several recipes of pie dough. Some recipe calls for vegetable shortening, lard or butter. My personal favourite has to be with butter. I never really like using shortening or lard and that is because, to me it's just not butter. Butter has a nice creamy, richness which makes the dough crumbly and flaky. And the aroma when combined with vanilla beans or vanilla extract is heavenly.
The pie filling is seriously delicious. It has a nutty caramelized taste. Since I love texture, this PECAN PIE has doubled amount of chopped Pecans and then lined with more Pecans. Extra Pecan equals extra crunch.
What's more perfect is that you could either have this pie warm or at room temperature. To compliment this pie, I made some Salted Caramel and drizzle it over the top. Or for a richer indulgence, you could warm up the pie, and serve it with a scoop of good vanilla ice-cream and finish off with some salted caramel syrup. Now that is comforting and perfect for any holiday season!

P/S: As I am collaborating a small business with my friend, I am unable to share the recipe at this point of time with you. However, feel free to take my tips and hints into consideration if you're planning to bake this pie. Here's one fabulous link to Gimme Some Oven where she shares tips on pie crust making and her Pecan Pie recipe.
