You’re gonna back after all


The rum gives it a nice kick and it really is the most amazing simple topping. I like to toast the pecans to give them a bit more crunch and deeper flavor. I throw them in the toaster oven on low and stay close by. They toast up pretty quick and when you can smell the nuts you know they are about done. Let me warn you they go from golden brown to burnt in seconds!

3 Tablespoons (1 ounce) Cornstarch
2 Teaspoons Baking Powder
