Bittersweet Chocolate Pecan Pie

No Southern holiday would be complete without a pecan pie! For an extra touch, serve this pie with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.

A slice of pecan pie on a plate with a fork.

Ingredients:

  • Frozen gluten-free pie crust
  • 1 ½ cups pecan halves or pieces
  • 1 ½ cups dark chocolate chips
  • 1 Tbsp. gluten-free all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup dark corn syrup, molasses, maple syrup or honey
  • 2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp. salt

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Toss together the pecans, chocolate and flour in a medium bowl.
  3. With an electric mixer on medium speed, beat together the butter and sugar in a large bowl until light and fluffy.
  4. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, beating well and scraping down the sides of the bowl after each addition.
  5. Add vanilla, salt and your choice of syrup, and beat until blended; the mixture may look curdled—this is normal.
  6. Stir in most of the the pecan mixture. Set aside a few to top the pie.
  7. Transfer the filling to the pie shell, then arrange some pecans on the top.
  8. Bake for about 55 minutes, until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out with just a bit of melted chocolate. The pie should be set around the edges, but still jiggly at the center.
  9. Cool the pie completely in the pan on a wire rack and then enjoy! The pie will keep for two days at room temperature.
