Chocolate Pecan Pie

Chocolate Pecan Pie

  • 1 all-butter pie crust, unbaked
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 4 ounces bittersweet or dark chocolate, chopped (or chocolate chunks) (chocolate is optional)
  • 1 cup white corn syrup
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped pecans
  • 3 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

 

Preheat the oven to 350.  Prepare the pie crust in a deep-dish pie pan.  Sprinkle the bottom of the crust with the flour and the chopped chocolate.

In a bowl, mix together the remaining ingredients until well combined.  Pour into the crust.  Bake the pie for 45-50 minutes.  If needed, cover the edges of the pie crust with foil to prevent them from over-browning while the pie bakes.

Cool completely before slicing.  Yields 8-10 slices.
