I'm making a pecan tart to end my Thanksgiving dinner but it's been so many decades since I've had pecan pie that I can't remember how it's served. Does it need an accompaniment like whipped cream or ice cream?
An affogato is a traditional coffee-flavored dessert that typically looks like a scoop of creamy gelato topped off with a pour of hot espresso. A shot of liqueur is sometimes added as well to kick things up a notch (as we do in the recipe below). If you want to make everything from scratch, get our Homemade Coffee Liqueur recipe and our Espresso Gelato recipe too.
