Chocolate Pecan Pie


Chocolate Pecan Pie

This week Dan’s company held a dessert-off.  The prize was steep, an iPad2.  We really wanted to win.  So I gave some instruction as Dan made chocolate pecan cup pies, that he served with his very own chocolate cherry stout.  It was a delicious combo.  We didn’t win, but Dan did learn how to make pie all on his own, which is something.

I filmed Dan making the pie and then he edited the video together. It was a combined effort, this video.

Chocolate Pecan Pie

1 stick of butter

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup sugar

3/4 cup corn syrup

1/4 tsp salt

3 eggs

1 1/2 cup chopped (or crushed) pecans

Pie crust  (recipe here)

1 cup mini chocolate chips

Melt butter and set aside to cool.  Beat eggs, then add sugar, syrup, and butter.  Whisk together.  Incorporate pecans.

Roll out dough and press it into a pie pan (or cupcake tins if you’re making cup-pies).  Sprinkle a handful of chocolate chips onto the dough.  Add a layer of the filling.  Sprinkle more chocolate chips and top with the remaining filling.

Bake at 350* for 30 minutes.  Let cool completely before serving.
