Hello adventures, welcome back to another post. Todays post will be all about my favorite holiday dessert, chocolate pecan pie. If you are like me and don’t like pumpkin pie or pumpkin desserts this is the perfect dessert for you. Unlike traditional pecan pie, this pie is richer in flavor and a little more complex. Now on to the recipe.
- 1 1/2 Cups Pecans Halves
- 1 Cup Semisweet Chocolate Chips
- 1 Unbaked 9 inch Pie Shell ( Here is my favorite pie crust recipe https://the-road-less-traveled.com/2020/11/16/my-all-butter–pie-crust–recipe/)
- 4 Eggs Beaten + 1 Egg for Brushing
- 1/2 Cup Sugar
- 1/2 Cup Light Brown Sugar
- 1/2 Cup Corn Syrup
- 1/2 Teaspoon Vanilla
- Pinch of Salt
- Flour for dusting
First pre-heat the oven to 375 degrees. Then roll out your pie crust on a floured surface about 2 inches bigger than the pan you are using. Then place the pie crust in a greased 9 inch pie pan. Next take a fork and poke some holes in the crust to prevent it from bubbling up. Brush the crust with an egg wash made with 1 egg, 1 teaspoon of water and a pinch of salt.
Next mix the chocolate chips and pecans together and put it in the unbaked pie crust.
Next whisk the remaining ingredients together. Pour the filling over the pecans and chocolate chips. Then crimp the edges of the pie (trim the edges if necessary). Brush the edges with the left over egg wash. Bake for about 1 hour or until the filling sets.
Cool for at least 30 minutes before serving. Serve with whipped topping or whatever you wish.
