My version of Southern Cuisine combined at its finest. Corn Bread and Butter Pecan's, combine together to make the best of Southern Cuisine, Posh Pudding.
This is using Fresh03 custard base and One on One Cornbread with Cap 27 to help with the texture. One on One Butter Pecan is used, it has a very authentic pecan taste. To add to the taste, I use FW Salted Caramel and Butterscotch.
Someone on Facebook shared a recipe for Bourbon Graham Cracker Candy, and my interest was piqued.
I decide to try and layer different concentrates to get the bourbon, graham, and pecan parts of the recipe. I adore FW Butter Pecan and Graham Cracker but wanted to see if I could boost them both a bit using OOO Butter Pecan and CAP Graham Cracker (which has a light bakery cinnamon note that plays well with the butter pecan and bourbon) respectively. I did the same with TFA Kentucky Bourbon and VT Bourbon . . . a proven pairing that works.
I used DIYFS Holy Holy Grail to boost the caramelized syrup of the two Butter Pecans (it is, in my opinion, a stellar caramel, and the touch of tobacco brings a nutty, earthy accent to help, both, the graham and the pecan aspects). Having attempted a graham forward recipe in the past, I wanted to round out the edges with a creamy custard, turning to the buttery, smooth FA Custard Premium to achieve that feat.
Mixed it 60vg/40pg and enjoyed it last night with several sips of whiskey . . . it was also an excellent complement to coffee this morning. After a full week with 5th graders, whose minds are still firmly fixed on summer-mode, it was a much needed respite from the chaos. Enjoy!

\\Update: This is still delicious after 10 days or so, but if you're patient the butter pecan seriously starts to shine after 3 weeks. Enjoy!
This is something I have put a lot of time into and I think I'm ready to share it. With most of my recipes I never feel like they are "done" but I like to think this is ready to present at least. This is my twist on a stroopwafel, but with cinnamon and a butter pecan filling. On to the notes!
We be Stroopin: The Stroopwafel part is fairly straightforward, INW Biscuit and LB Belgian Waffle bring out the main stroopwafel for this recipe, but I added some CAP CDS to help support the bakery notes, but not too much, and adds a great cinnamon flavor to it. I was playing with JF Biscuit between 0.5%-1%, but I think it was adding an off/cookie kind of note and a little too much soft mouthfeel, so INW made a great and logical replacement.
I know the % for INW Biscuit is weird, but 0.75% was a little too dry and 0.5% you can't really notice it, so 0.66% is where I put it at.
Dat filling: I originally was trying to use just FW Butter Pecan and nothing else, but after hearing the suggestion of trying OOO it came out much better, I also felt that since it was a filling it needed some support and TFA Bavarian Cream did really well with that.
The Holiest of Holys: DFS Holy Vanilla just does great with everything, it helps support the waffel, a little for the filling, and all around just makes this profile great.
Add some CAP SS to taste and you are good to go! Be sure to leave a review with your thoughts. If you don't have OOO Butter Pecan, FW is an okay replacement at 2%
