Chocolate and Pecan Pie
chocolate, pecans, corn syrup, sugar
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
Roll out the prepared pie dough into a circle. Just eyeball your 9 inch pie plate and the circle to see if you're close. That's my technique.
Once your circle is about the size you need, fold the dough in half and pick it up and place onto the pie plate. Unfold the dough and push the dough onto the bottom and sides.
Trim the edges. I cut them even with the edge of the pie plate using a knife.
Fold the pie crust under itself and crimp it using your fingers.
Sprinkle the pecans and chocolate chips on the bottom of the pie crust. Set aside.I used semi-sweet chocolate chips.
Add the butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar, corn syrup, and eggs to a large saucepan. Mix until completely combined.
Place over medium heat stirring constantly. Heat until the butter and sugar are both melted. Remove from the heat.
Add in the vanilla and stir until combined.
Pour the hot mixture into the pie crust.
Place the pie into the preheated oven and bake for 1 hour or until the top is crusted and the pie is set.
Remove from the oven and let cool so the pie can set up.
Once cooled, slice and serve. You can easily warm up the cooled slices, but the pie will run slightly.
