Chocolate Pecan Pie

Pecans grow in Texas. There are farms where you can buy pecans and they crack open the nuts for you. This year there is a shortage of pecans due to severe drought and export to China. Yes, you heard that right. We export pecans to China. Now, enough of the general knowledge lesson. This is a post from a time when I was going through a pecan obsession. I skipped most of the ingredients from the original recipe and struck to pretty much the chocolates and pecans. I made a chocolate pecan pie for Thanksgiving.

  1. Melt 4 ounces of chocolate chip and 1/2 a stick of butter.
  2. Beat 3 egg whites and 1 tsp vanilla extract.
  3. Fold in the eggs and the chocolate mixture.
  4. I used frozen store bought pie crust. So I baked the pie crust first according to the instruction on the package.
  5. Pour the filling into the pie and bake at 325 for 45-50 minutes.

We saved this bottle of Pinnacle dessert wine from our trip to Canada this Summer for a special occasion and were thoroughly disappointed. To top it all, we took a bottle to my husband's cousin home when we visited them. Moral of the story, stick with wines or tested and tried dessert wines as a host presents. Good part, this will serve as a story opportunity for future get-togethers.
