Bulletin! I just discovered the most wonderful (actually, I can't think of an adjective good enough so 'wonderful' will have to do) and amazing topping for ice cream. Better yet, it makes use of the pecan pie filling you have left over after making my famous pecan pie.
Repeat our mantra once again: "It's a Pecan pie, not a Filling pie."
Take this cup or so of filling, add some finely chopped pecans and heat it on the stove until it begins to thicken and boil. As soon as it starts to boil, remove from heat and add a teaspoon or so of vanilla or brandy or bourbon.
Seal it in a jar and let it cool in the fridge. Great on top of ice cream.
