I have not shared a recipe in awhile and I thought this delightful goody was too good not to share. 

We tried this on Thanksgiving and it was amazing!

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
  • 1 frozen pie shell (9 inches)
  • 3 eggs, lightly beaten

  • 1 cup dark corn syrup
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoon coffee liqueur
  • 1 teaspoon ground ancho chili pepper*
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup pecan halves

* I did not use the ancho chili pepper – and the pie still turned out amazing!

Directions 

  • Sprinkle chopped pecans and chocolate chips into pastry shell. In a small bowl, whisk the eggs, sugar, corn syrup, butter, liqueur, pepper and vanilla. Pour into pastry; arrange pecan halves over filling.
  • Bake at 350° for 55-60 minutes or until set. Cool on a wire rack. Refrigerate leftovers. Yield: 8 servings.
