It's National Dessert Month and HerKentucky has teamed up with Wholly Wholesome to talk about desserts! This morning, I stopped by WTVQ in Lexington to talk about National Dessert Month and share this delicious butter pecan toffee recipe!
Butter Pecan Toffee
- 1 stick butter
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 1 tablespoon corn syrup
- 20 tea biscuits
- Chopped toasted pecans
1. Combine 1 stick butter, 3/4 cup sugar and 1 tablespoon corn syrup in a saucepan over medium heat.
2. Cook, stirring occasionally, until brown (305 degrees F on a candy thermometer).
3. Arrange 20 tea biscuits side by side on a large buttered, foil-lined baking sheet.
4. Pour sugar mixture on top and sprinkle with chopped toasted pecans. Chill until firm; break apart.
The folks at Wholly Wholesome sent me this recipe to try, and it is fantastic-- a great mix of salty and sweet and crunchy. Of course, it wouldn't be a recipe from the HerKentucky kitchen if we didn't work in a little Kentucky bourbon, so I made one batch with a little Old Forrester. No surprise, it was pretty tasty!
