Try this luscious variation of a classic pecan pie for a memorable end to your holiday meal. The spicy crunch of a traditional pecan pie nestles on top of a layer of divinely rich chocolate.
INGREDIENTS:
  • 1 refrigerated pie crust, (from 14.1-ounce package)
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 4 eggs
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 2 teaspoons mccormick® all natural pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup dark corn syrup
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon mccormick® ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon mccormick® ground allspice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups pecan halves

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Line 9-inch deep-dish pie plate with pie crust. Bake 7 minutes. Remove crust from oven. Reduce oven temperature to 325°F.
  2. Meanwhile, microwave chocolate chips and milk in a medium microwavable bowl on high for 1 to 1 1/2 minutes. Stir until smooth. Pour chocolate evenly over the crust.
  3. Beat eggs in a large bowl. Add remaining ingredients; mix well. Slowly pour mixture over chocolate layer. Place a ring of foil around the edges of the crust to prevent over-browning.
  4. Bake 55 to 60 minutes or until filling is puffed and the center is still soft enough to move when shaken gently. Cool on a completely wire rack.
