I have made this many times it's easy to make and very good, if desired the pecans can be replaced with chopped walnuts, and for special occasions add in a couple tablespoons bourbon or dark rum :)

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 prepared pie pastry (to fit bottom of a 9-inch pie dish)
  • 1 cup dark corn syrup
  • 12 cup sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 2 (1 ounce) semi-sweet chocolate baking squares, melted
  • 1 12 tablespoons flour
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 14 teaspoon salt
  • 1 12 cups coarsley chopped pecans
  • whipped cream

Directions

  1. Set oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Fit prepared pastry in a 9-inch glass pie plate, flute the edge.
  3. In a large bowl whisk corn syrup, sugar, eggs, melted butter, melted chocolate, flour, vanilla and salt until very well blended.
  4. Add/mix in the chopped pecans.
  5. Pour into prepared pastry.
  6. Place the pie plate on a baking sheet.
  7. Bake for about 50-55 minutes or until crust is golden and the filling is set in the center when the pie is shaken slightly (the pie will firm up even more after removing from the oven).
