Pecan Torte with Bourbon Whipped Cream

Pecan pie can be quite sugary-which is why many people love it-but this torte is a nice not-too-sweet alternative. Ground pecans and a good amount of eggs bake into a meringue-like cake. Garnish with a big dollop of boozy whipped cream.

Deliciously light, tasty and simple~

I made this dessert for Thanksgiving along with another one and I love it.It was a big hit for my family. It's easy to make and if you like a nutty type of dessert or just love pecans this is delicious. I used a 9" spring form pan to cook the torte in and it was so light and fluffy and cuts beautifully. I used the bourbon in the whipped cream and it was a really nice flavor. For anyone who is concerned about it tasting too alcohol like- don't. It was just right and I'm not a drinker. Lovely and easy dessert for any occasion but especially nice in the Autumn. Definitely recommend a try~
Pros: Adaptable, Appearance, Easy, Quick, Will Make Again, Yield

Easy to Follow Recipe
November 19, 2013
this recipe was extremely easy and quick (after you let the eggs settle at room temperature). i was looking for a nice dessert to serve in the fall and came across this. there are only a few ingredients, which is nice. also, I didn't have bourbon in the house, so I opted just for regular whipping cream.
the recipe calls for 35-40 minutes baking time and I set mine at 36. I think that was too much, so you might want to try 33 or 34. just enough time so that the bottom doesn't burn.
but otherwise, a nice dish for Fall (and thanksgiving).
Pros: Easy
