Elle's Kitchen: The Summer of Pie²

Chocolate Pecan Pie

It has been 3 years since our last
Summer of Pie!  That was before this
blog even existed.  The next summer
was the Summer of the World when
we circumnavigated the globe, last
year was the Summer of Fun.  With a
full house for the summer, it seemed
like a good time to have some pie.  This
year we will call it:
The Summer of Pie²
In the last 3 years I have realized that
Pecan Pie is now my favorite pie, replacing
my former favorite Pumpkin Pie.  Since I
have already posted a recipe for Pecan Pie
for National Pie Day, I decided to change
things up a bit and make a Chocolate Pecan
Pie.  I have never made nor eaten this type
before, I hope it's good!

3 tabl. butter, melted
3 eggs, beaten
3/4 cup brown sugar
2 tabl. flour
1 teas. vanilla
3/4 cup dark corn syrup
1 1/2 cup pecan halves
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
1 unbaked 9'' pie shell
Preheat oven to 350º F.
Melt butter and set aside.
In a medium sized bowl, add the beaten eggs.
Stir in brown sugar, flour, vanilla and corn
syrup until combined. 
Add butter and stir.

Add pecans and chocolate chips and combine.

Pour mixture into pie shell.

Place on sheet tray and bake for
50 to 60 minutes.

Check back on Wednesdays for the
next three months and if you have
any favorite pie recipes, send them!
