Mayan Chocolate Pecan Pie

READY IN: 1hr 20mins
Recipe by Halcyon Eve

From Simple & Delicious magazine, this pecan pie has the interesting additions of dark chocolate, coffee liqueur, and ground ancho pepper. I haven't tried it yet, but it sounds fascinating! Prep time doesn't include cooling time.

Okay! So I used Battle in Seattle's All Butter Pie Crust Recipe for the shell (halved) and this pie was amazing! The only change I made was as follows: instead of using darl chocolate chips, I used slightly more chopped pecans and, after tossing them in 1T of melted salted butter, I tissed them in Dutch Processed cocoa and sugar. I sprinkled these in the bottom of the pie crust, and otherwise followed the recipe to a T, and it came out wonderfully. Not spicy, doesn't taste like chiles, but theres just....something....and it finishes the wonderfully. I also covered my crust until the last ten minutes, so it wouldnt burn. Thankyou so much!
