Food Magazine Treasures: Salted-Caramel Chocolate Pecan Pie

This photo is from Southern Living. It looked so beautiful in the magazine that the Grill-Meister knew immediately that this pie had to be on our Thanksgiving table that year.

I’ve waxed poetic about my love of food magazines before, and there’s no better time to dive into them than the holiday season.  So many recipes that have become staples in our family first made it into our kitchen from the pages of a magazine, like this 2013 recipe for Salted-Caramel Chocolate Pecan Pie from Southern Living.  The Grill-Meister is also a Pie-Meister, and he dog-eared the page with this recipe immediately when he got his hands on my copy of the Thanksgiving issue that year.

The Grill-Meister’s nose for picking a good recipe is finely honed and he hit a home run with this one.

The pie is a wonderful mix of textures – the crunch of the toasted pecans with their caramel glaze and sea salt garnish balances perfectly with the soft, fudge-like filling.  The recipe was very straightforward and relatively simple, and the results from the home kitchen look every bit as appealing as the food magazine pie.  (Don’t you hate it when the magazine images are impossible to recreate at home?)  The Grill-Meister’s pie is shown below.  I think he should make it again this year, don’t you?

This pie was every bit as delicious as it looks.
