Chocolate Chip Pecan Pie--and the Giveaway continues!!

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.


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!

P.S. Don't forget--to enter the giveaway for an autographed copy of Comfort Food by Kate Jacobs, all you have to do is post a comment or become a follower of this blog. Details in yesterday's post!

I love pecan pie!! If you change the regular sugar to brown sugar and double or triple the vanilla, you will get pie that you would be willing to die to have a piece of!!!

Pam said...

Cheryl, thanks for the suggestion; I will definitely try that. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
