Exclusive Portal 2 BLC!
That’s bakeable, luscious content—available exclusively from PC Gamer!
When PC Gamer first chatted with GLaDOS voice actress Ellen McLain after the release of the original Portal, our conversation with the affable, multi-talentedaward-winner naturally turned to baked goods. As a native Southerner, McLain is naturally fond of Red Velvet Cake. But when she goes into the kitchen, what comes out is a plate of delicious, toasty, aromatic Pecan Tassies.
Now PC Gamer is proud to present the very first Portal 2 BLC: Ellen McLain’s own recipe for Pecan Tassies. We recommend baking four batches over the weekend and enjoying them in frequent breaks between co-op missions.
Ellen McLain’s Pecan Tassies
1 (three-ounce) package cream cheese
1/2 cup butter
1 cup sifted all-purpose flour
Combine cream cheese and butter. Blend in flour. Chill about one hour. Shape into balls about one inch in diameter and press into tiny ungreased muffin tins.
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon butter, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2/3 cup chopped pecans
Beat egg with wooden spoon; add brown sugar, melted butter, and vanilla. Mix well and stir in pecans. Pour into prepared shells and bake at 325 degrees for about 25 minutes; cool before removing from pan.
Makes 20-24 tassies. GLaDOS says, “Bon appétit!”
