Contrary to the norm, Hollywood isn't entirely composed of heartless corporate robots. It has people, too, and when not fetching oil martinis for their robot overlords, they like playing games. Take director Guillermo del Toro, for example.

Watch for yourself, but more importantly, listen carefully.

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.
