NATIONAL PECAN TORTE DAY

Each year on August 22, pecan lovers across the country participate in National Pecan Torte Day.

A torte is a rich dessert filled with whipped cream, buttercream, mousse, jam, fruits or nuts.  The baker will often glaze and garnish the torte once it is cooled.  Generally made with little to no flour, tortes use ground nuts or breadcrumbs, along with sugar, eggs and flavorings instead.

The pecan tree is the only nut tree native to North America.
