Valentine's Day Recipe Roundup - @SavorySimple


I never considered Valentine’s Day to be the most romantic of holidays when I was younger.  You see, February 14th happens to be both my mother and my brother’s birthday.  Now that I’m no longer living with my parents and am, you know, married, I like to do something small to celebrate the holiday aside from calling my family.  Maybe it’s a romantic dinner for two at home, maybe we go out, maybe Jeff (cough cough) brings me some flowers.

This year we’re dining in and I’ve compiled a Valentine’s Day Recipe Roundup with over 60 options for your entire meal.  Enjoy!

 Chocolate chip bourbon pecan pie ~ savory simple

Think you know pecan pie? This fun spin on a classic Thanksgiving dessert kicks things up with chocolate and bourbon. Chocolate chip bourbon pecan pie is nothing less than pie heaven.

 

Chocolate Chip Bourbon Pecan Pie
 
Cook time
Total time
 
Serves: 1 pie
Ingredients
  • 1 store-bought pie dough (or your favorite homemade recipe)
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1-1/2 cup pecans
  • ⅓ cup chocolate chips
  • 2 tablespoons bourbon
Instructions
  1. Roll the pie dough into a shallow 8- or 9-inch pie dish, leaving an inch overhang. Fold the excess dough under itself and then crimp the edges in a decorative pattern of your choice. Use a fork to prick holes in the dough across the bottom of the pan and up the sides (this prevents air bubbles from forming). Allow the dough to chill for at least 30 minutes.
  2. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Combine the eggs, sugars, butter, maple syrup, vanilla, flour, pecans and chocolate chips in a bowl. Pour into the reserved pie dish.
  3. Place the pie dish onto a baking sheet and place the baking sheet in the oven. After 10 minutes, lower the temperature to 350 degrees F and allow the pie to bake for another 30 minutes.
  4. Immediately after the pie is removed from the oven, drizzle the two tablespoons of bourbon evenly over the top. It will sizzle and combine with the other ingredients.
  5. Allow the pie to set for at least 30 minutes before serving.

Momofuku Milk Bar's Crack Pie ~ Savory Simple

I met Christina Tosi earlier this year at a pastry event in DC and was totally smitten. Full blown girl crush. She is so incredibly creative! Talk about inspiration. I wanted to hang out with her all night but also didn’t want to be a weird stalker chick. So I let her do her job after sampling everything on the table. All of it was delicious.
