A stone's throw from Coca-Cola's headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia is a favorite local restaurant called JCT Kitchen. Among the many southern delicacies listed on the menu you will find a dessert that is dear to our hearts. It's JCT's Virginia Peanut Pie with Coke Reduction. The new twist on the traditional pairing of Coke and peanuts is a delightful treat. JCT pastry chef, Taria Camerino created the recipe and was not only kind enough to share it with us, but walk us through how to make it in the video below. We hope that if you're not able to stop in JCT to try a slice, that you'll enjoy making it at home.
