On Thanksgiving my hubby looked at me with a longing in his eyes and asked…
“Are we having your chocolate pecan pie tonight?”
I felt a little bad saying no, but in my defense he did wait until that day to ask : )
I made this pie for the first time as a newlywed, using a baking book my Mom had given me for a gift. It’s still a favorite 10 years later! (Which says a lot considering how much I love to bake).
This is such an easy pie to make, whips together fast, and is even better the second day.
While I prefer my homemade piecrust over the frozen variety, I won’t be the pie police, so do as you please. : )
