Its Pie Season! And as its fall, what better way to celebrate this beautiful crisp weather than baking a pecan pie! Not just a regular pecan pie, a Chocolate Pecan Pie! YES! I changed it! And added chocolate because I LOVE CHOCOLATE! 😀 The pie tastes absolutely amazing, and I would personally never go back to a regular pecan pie, ever again! But then again… I’m very bias towards chocolate.. lol
Here’s how you bake it!
You can buy a pie crust from the store, or bake your own.
To bake your own pie crust:
- 2 1/2 cup flour
- 1 cup butter, chilled (its very important that the butter is very cold)
- 1 tsp salt
- 6-7 tbs ice cold water
For the Chocolate Pecan Pie Filling:
Pie crust: (If you are baking you’re own then follow instructions below, if not then just grab your ready bought pie crust and line it into a 9inch pie pan, place into fridge until its time to fill)
- In a large bowl, combine flour and salt. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in water, a tablespoon at a time, until mixture forms a ball. Cut into half and wrap in plastic and refrigerate for minimum 40 min (or for best results overnight)
- Roll one of the dough balls out to fit a 9 inch pie plate. Place crust in pie plate. Press the dough evenly into the bottom and sides of the pie plate. Place the pie plate into the fridge until it the filling is ready.
