We've made this beloved Southern dessert even more tempting by adding dark chocolate. The pie filling puffs up during baking but settles as it cools.

    Sarah, you mentioned corn syrup being used with every pecan pie recipe and wondered if you can use something else. Try cane syrup. A darker and more distinct flavor and a natural to use with pecans.

    Hi, I want to do this recipe but Is not easy to find corn syrup in my country. Could I replace it with honey?

      You could use 1 cup of brown sugar with 1/4 Cupid water.

    I made this for our Thanksgiving pie today. Delicious and very rich. I was a little surprised that the chocolate rose to the top and the sugar/corn syrup mixture stayed as a neat layer on the bottom. A very pretty presentation.

    The first time I made this, I had the runny problem too. Next time, I stirred and simmered all of the filling ingredients (except pecans) to 140 degrees F, like one would do with lemon pie filling. Then continued with the recipe as written. No more gloppiness.

    I had the same problem. I cut into my pie and it was runny in the middle. What happened??

    Does the pie crust need to be prebaked for this recipe? I know it doesn't say to do that, but for some reason I thought it should be.
