    Manami's Note:

    Way too, too fattening! However, it is awesome! We served this as one of the desserts for our Thanksgiving Dinner (for over 300) party. From Real Simple Magazine, November 2006 issue. Refrigeration time from 3 to 48 hours.

    FILLING

    CRUST

    • 1 cup pecans (4 oz)
    • 5 ounces shortbread cookies (such as Lorna Doones)
    • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, cold, cut into pieces

    Directions:

    1. 1
      CRUST:.
    2. 2
      Heat oven to 350ºF.
    3. 3
      In a food processor, pulse the pecans and cookies until crumbs form.
    4. 4
      Add the butter and pulse just until combined.
    5. 5
      Transfer the mixture to an 8 or 9-inch pie plate, pressing it evenly over the bottom and up the sides.
    6. 6
      Bake the crust until slightly darkened, 20 to 25 minutes.
    7. 7
      Transfer pie plate to wire rack and let it cool completely (this can be made up to 24 hours ahead of time).
    8. 8
      FILLING:.
    9. 9
      In a small saucepan, combine 1 pint of cream, the chocolate, and 3 tablespoons of the sugar.
    10. 10
      Cook over medium-low heat, whisking frequently, until the chocolate melts.

      In a bowl, combine the cornstarch and the remaining 3 tablespoons of sugar.
    12. 12
      Add the egg yolks and whisk.
    13. 13
      Bring the chocolate mixture to a simmer (it must be bubbling gently in order for the filling to properly set).
    14. 14
      Add 2 tablespoons of the simmering chocolate mixture to the egg mixture.
    15. 15
      Whisking constantly, slowly add the egg mixture to the pan.
    16. 16
      Cook, still whisking, until thickened (it should resemble the consistency of pudding), about 2 minutes.
    17. 17
      Remove from heat.
    18. 18
      Add the vanilla and butter.
    19. 19

    20. 20
      Pour the filling into the crust.
    21. 21
      Place a piece of plastic wrap directly against the surface of the filling.
    22. 22
      Refrigerate for at least 3 hours and up to 48 hours.
    23. 23
      Remove the plastic wrap and sprinkle with the cocoa.
    24. 24
      With an electric mixer on medium-high, beat the remaining 1 pint of cream.
