Kahlua Pecan Pie


If you want variation to the ordinary pecan pie, you can try this pecan pie recipe with kahlua coffee liquor. If pecan is not available, I think walnut can be a very good substitute. But both walnut and pecan is not native in the tropics so pili nuts is I think a good substitute too.
