I made the chocolate pecan pie from Jennifer Cornbleet's Raw for dessert. Last week I made the ganache, the crust and the date paste. This week I put them all together and came up with this little cute pie (pun intended))
I'm not gonna put up the recipe. But I'll tell you what I did.
Basically, it's crust, chocolate ganache, date filling and pecans on top.
I pushed the crust into the pan then put some decorative pecans on the bottom and sides of the panned crust. Then I poured the softened ganache into the crust and tipped the pan around to get it even.
I put chopped pecans on top of the ganache and pressed them in lightly.
Then you make a mixture of date paste, agar, syrup (the recipe called for agave or maple but i was out so I used more date paste. I could have done it with neither, IMO *shrugs*
I put pecans all over the top and drizzled some thinned ganache over it all.
