  • 2 store bought pie dough rounds
  • 1/3 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 tablespoons butter
  • 3/4 cup pecans, chopped, plus 10-15 whole for garnish
  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 2 eggs, divided
  • 2 tablespoons light corn syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Place one of the pie dough rounds onto a pizza stone or a sheet pan, flouring bottom generously.


With the other dough round, cut into 1 1/2 inch strips with a fluted cutter, and make long twists. Set on floured surface.

In a double boiler, melt the chocolate chips and the butter.


Add the pecans, sugar, 1 egg, corn syrup, and vanilla extract.

Pour the chocolate mixture onto the round dough, leaving 2 inches around edges.


Place the dough twists on top of the filling, criss crossing, making a lattice pattern.

Fold the edges over and crimp making a pretty border.


In each empty square of lattice, place a whole pecan.

Brush the egg wash over all the crust.


Bake for 28 - 30 minutes, or until crust is golden brown.
