This New Orleans-style chocolate-pecan pie should be made a day ahead to enjoy well chilled with vanilla whipped cream.

    The filling was too runny, and the crust was as hard as a brick---couldn't get a knife to cut through it. Other pies with pudding-type filling call for more cornstarch than this recipe. I believe whoever posted it either got the amount wrong or this recipe was not tested. It was a disaster, but my kids love chocolate so they got spoons and ate the filling out of the pie crust! The filling was tasty---too bad the pie was a FAIL.

    Why does it need to be put through a sieve? (step 2)

    I have baked this pie many times and have never had any problems. It was definately the same recipe. Perhaps you did not put enough cornstarch in.

    Very disappointing. Remained liquid and never set. I'm wondering if this is a wrong recipe as I now see there are TWO with the same name...
