Maple Pecan Pie With Chocolate Recipe

A delicious pecan pie recipe with a gorgeous maple syrup twist.


1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup plus 1 tablespoon shortening
1/2 teaspoon maple flavor plus cold water to make 3 tablespoons

2/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup butter, melted
1 cup real maple syrup
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 eggs
1 cup pecan halves
1/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1 teaspoon butter


Preheat oven to 375F.

In medium bowl, mix flour and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Cut in 1/3 cup plus 1 tablespoon shortening, using pastry blender, until you have a mix that is in small pieces.

Sprinkle in cold maple flavor mixture, 1 tablespoon at a time, moistening all bits of flour.

Gather pastry into a ball; shape into flattened round on lightly floured surface.

Add flour to your rolling pin and roll dough out so it is 2 inches larger than 9-inch pie plate.

Trim any overhanging edge of pastry 1 inch from rim of plate.

In medium bowl, beat sugar, butter, maple syrup, 1/2 teaspoon salt and the eggs with hand beater until smooth. Stir in pecans. Pour into pastry-lined pie plate.

Bake 40 to 50 minutes or until set.

Cool 15 minutes. In medium heavy bottom saucepan, melt chocolate chips and 1 teaspoon butter over low heat, stirring constantly; drizzle over top of pie.

Serve pie warm or cool.
