Chocolate Pecan Pie

Servings: 8 slices

INGREDIENTS

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 2 beaten eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 1 cup semi sweet morsels
  • 1 frozen or refrigerated pie crust (you can make your own pie crust if you really want to, but I’ve found that with this particular pie it’s hard to tell much of a difference)

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit
  2. Melt 1/2 cup butter on medium heat in saucepan.
  3. Once butter is melted remove saucepan from stove and let it cool for a few minutes (this step really is necessary because if you don’t let it cool, the eggs will start to cook when you add them to the pan)
  4. Add the sugar, flour, eggs, and vanilla to the saucepan and mix well
  5. Stir in pecans and chocolate chips
  6. Pour mixture into pie crust
  7. Bake pie for 35 to 40 minutes (start checking center of pie with a toothpick at 35 minutes to see if it’s done)
  8. Remove pie from oven and let it set for at least an hour before serving
  9. Serve pie warm and with whip cream!
