Ingredients

How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Melt butter and chocolate in a small saucepan over low heat, stirring often with wooden spoon until smooth.
  • Beat eggs at medium speed for five minutes.
  • Gradually add sugar to eggs, beating until well blended.
  • Slowly add chocolate mixture and vanilla to eggs and sugar, then, gradually add flour. Stir in half of the pecans.
  • Pour mixture into a lightly greased 9-inch glass pie plate. (I use Baker’s Secret).
  • Bake for 23-30 minutes or until center is slightly firm. Keep in mind that gas ovens cook these pies much faster than electric ones. DO NOT OVERCOOK. When the outer edge is “brownie-like” and the center has a slight firmness to it, it’s done. You can’t use the toothpick in the middle test on this recipe because the middle is really GOOEY!
  • Cool on baking rack until pie is firm enough to handle. Top each serving with ice-cream drizzled with chocolate syrup; sprinkle with remaining pecans. DO NOT MICROWAVE ~ it MELTS the pie!
  • Sit back, put your feet up, turn off the phone, dare anybody to knock on the door, and ENJOY! Mmm-mmm-MMM-mmm-MMM!
  • Yield: 1 9-inch pie
  • Prep time: 15 minutes
  • Bake: 23-30 minutes
