Pecan Torte from Christian’s Restaurant

Updated: Mar 21, 2021

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

2 Eggs

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.
