I have the privilege of hosting Thanksgiving dinner this year. Eric and Donna will join Casey, Nathan and me for the mostly traditional feast. Donna is bringing a couple of appetizers along with company potato casserole and broccoli salad; I will make turkey, dressing, sweet potato casserole, green beans, cranberry sauce, and yeast rolls. For dessert, I am making two pies--one pumpkin, one pecan. Make that CHOCOLATE CHIP pecan--because almost anything is better with chocolate!
Here's the recipe.
CHOCOLATE CHIP PECAN PIE
3 large eggs
1 1/2 cup light corn syrup
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup pecans, halves or pieces
Beat eggs slightly with fork. Stir in syrup, sugar and vanilla until blended. Add chocolate pieces and pecans. Mix well. Pour into unbaked pie shell (I use Pillsbury!) and bake at 375 degrees for 45 to 50 minutes or until knife comes out clean.
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
