Pecan pie is a traditional holiday recipe but yours will be so exceptional that your guests will be begging to know your secret recipe. Teeccino is actually infused in the maple syrup and its roasted notes combined with the maple are heavenly. Served with a steaming mug of Teeccino, there won’t be any leftovers.
