Ingredients

  • All-purpose flour, for work surface
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 recipe Pie Dough
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup light corn syrup
  • 1/2 cup dark corn syrup
  • 2 cups pecan halves
  • 4 ounces bittersweet baking chocolate (such as Ghirardelli 60 percent cacao), chopped

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees. On a lightly floured work surface, roll out dough to a 15-inch round. With a dry pastry brush, sweep off the excess flour; fit dough into a 9 1/2-inch glass pie plate, pressing it into the edges. Trim to a 1-inch overhang all around. Fold under overhang so it extends slightly beyond the edge of the pie plate. Crimp edge as desired. Cover with plastic wrap; chill pie shell until firm, about 30 minutes.

  2. Step 2

    In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, butter, and vanilla and almond extracts to combine. Add the sugar, mix until incorporated. Add corn syrups, and mix until thoroughly combined. Using a rubber spatula, stir in pecans and chocolate.

  3. Step 3

    Pour filling into prepared pie shell, and bake until filling is set, 50 to 55 minutes. Cool on a wire rack at least 20 minutes before serving.

    Delicious pie. I put it on a cookie sheet before I put it in the oven, just in case it would bubble over and it did bubble over.

    Wonderfully delicious pie! I made it for a Thanksgiving dessert and it was a huge hit! FYI: While baking, the filling bubbled over onto the bottom of the oven and created a huge, smoky mess. Perhaps place a foil-wrapped pan below just in case this happens to you...

    Made this pie for a dinner. It was a hit. I put more chocolate in it. It is an extremely rich pie. Cut the sweet w/ some whipped topping.

    This pie was a hit! Warning..it is very sweet. Next time I would put foil or a pie crust edge protector on the edge of the crust as it browned pretty quickly. A decadent filling but good if you like it sweet!
