Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

I love this recipe and have been making it for years. It has become our family favorite pie for Thanksgiving and Christmas. It does "boil over", but like another baker commented, I put the pie on a cookie sheet lined with a sheet of foil in order to prevent a mess. Also, I've skipped the almond extract at times and its just as delicious without it. Lastly, this can be made a few days before its going to be eaten. Just store in a cool place or the fridge until you are ready to serve it and then heat up right 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!
