I was looking for a recipe for my sweet tooth. We are in the middle of pecan season. I found this recipe for Pecan Tortes in the Chef’s Charity Cookbook. It was a menu item from the now-closed Christian’s Restaurant. It’s the best time of the year for this dish. And there is no cooking involved.
8oz Brown Sugar, sifted
8oz Powdered Sugar, sifted
8oz Butter, softened
1/2 teaspoon Vanilla
1 cup Pecans, chopped
8oz Coconut Macaroons, crumbled
Mix all ingredients well with a wooden spoon in a bowl and refrigerate. When firm, roll in heavy aluminum foil to desired diameter and freeze. When ready to serve, unwrap and slice the roll. Place a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top of each slice. Serve immediately. If desired, put hot chocolate sauce on top.
