Dark Chocolate Pecan Pie

موقع أيام نيوز

Deep decadent and delicious dark chocolate pecan pie with sea salt.

Ingredients

  • Homemade Pie Crust (my recipe makes 2 crusts; you can halve the crust recipe or freeze the 2nd half)
  • 2 and 1/2 cups (250g) shelled pecans
  • 1 cup (180g) dark chocolate chips*
  • 3 large eggs, at room temperature
  • 1 cup (240ml) dark corn syrup*
  • 1/2 cup (100g) packed dark brown sugar (or light brown)
  • 1/4 cup (4 Tbsp; 56g) unsalted butter, melted and slightly cooled
  • 1 and 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • sea salt for topping

Instructions

  1. The crust: Prepare my pie crust recipe through step 5.
  2. After the pie crust has chilled, adjust the oven rack to the lower third position and preheat the oven to 350°F (177°C).
  3. Roll out the chilled pie dough: On a floured work surface, roll out one of the discs of chilled dough (you can freeze the 2nd for later use, see note). Turn the dough about a quarter turn after every few rolls until you have a circle 12 inches in diameter. Carefully place the dough into a 9-inch pie dish.* Tuck it in with your fingers, making sure it is smooth. Flute or crimp the pie crust edges. No need to pre-bake the crust.
  4. The filling: Spread pecans evenly inside pie crust and sprinkle the chocolate chips evenly on top. Set aside. Whisk the eggs, corn syrup, brown sugar, melted butter, vanilla, salt, and cinnamon together in a large bowl. Once completely combined and thick, pour evenly over pecans and chocolate chips
  5. Bake the pie for 40-50 minutes, or until the top is lightly browned. After the first 20 minutes of bake time, I place a pie crust shield on top of the pie to prevent the edges from browning too quickly. You can also tent a piece of aluminum foil over the whole pie if the top is browning too quickly. Remove finished pie from the oven and place on a wire rack to cool completely. The pie filling will set as it cools.
  6. Sprinkle with sea salt (if using), then slice and serve pie. Top with whipped cream and chocolate shavings, if desired. Cover and store leftover pie at room temperature for 1-2 days or in the refrigerator for 4-5 days.
