How to make it

  • Sift the flour and put it in your food processor, add the butter and pulse till the it resembles fine breadcrumbs. Transfer to a large bowl and stir in the caster sugar.Stir in the egg yolk. Knead lightly to form a firm dough, cover with Clingfilm and refrigerate for 1 ½ hours. Roll out the chilled pastry on a lightly floured surface and use it to line a 20cm tart tin.
  • Filling:
  • Heat the butter gently on medium saucepan till melted, sift in the cocoa powder and stir in the syrup. Place the eggs and sugar in a large bowl and beat together. Add the syrup mixture and the chopped pecans and stir. Pour the mixture into the prepared pastry case. Arrange the pecan halves in a decorative way around the edge of the surface.
  • Bake in a preheated oven to 375 F for 40 minutes or until the filling is set. Leave to cool and serve warm with a spoonful of whipped cream, dusted with cinnamon, or chill in the fridge and serve cold. The taste is great in both cases.

    Good flavor for a pecan and chocolate combination. Mother just loved it up. Made a pic but mine doesn't come close to being as pretty as yours.
    Added a scoop of pumpkin and blackberry ice cream.

    My husband loves loves pecan pie, one Christmas I made the mistake of making a Chocolate pecan pie and he had a panic attack. I thought it was the best ever and I dont like pecan pie much. I have to say it looked a lot different than yours, it was much more chocolate like- maybe that is where I screwed up.

    Sounds fabulous. Only problem is pecans are very expensive in England. Might have to bring some back next time I'm in the U.S.
