When my fiance first made this for me, I declared it to be the best pie ever! Creamy chocolate combines with crunchy nuts in a great, gooey filling. —Tanya Taylor, Cary, North Carolina

  1. Combine flour, sugar and salt; cut in butter until crumbly. Gradually add water, tossing with a fork until dough holds together when pressed. Flatten into a disk. Wrap in plastic; refrigerate until easy to handle, about 1 hour.
  2. Preheat oven to 325°. On a floured surface, roll dough to a 1/8-in.-thick circle; transfer to a 9-in. pie plate. Trim pastry to 1/2 in. beyond rim of plate; flute edge.
  3. Beat first seven filling ingredients until blended. Stir in 1 cup pecans and 1/2 cup chocolate chips. Pour filling into crust; sprinkle with remaining pecans and chocolate chips. Bake until crust is golden brown and filling is puffed, 50-60 minutes. Cool completely on a wire rack. Yield: 8 servings.

"Disappointed. No one liked it and ended up throwing it out. Too much chocolate."

"This was a typical chocolate pecan pie -- always delicious! I did not care for the taste of bourbon however."

"This pie was good--made three this weekend. However, I don't like to the taste of the bourbon, so when I made the pie again, I substituted a little white corn syrup, a tsp. of vanilla, and water for the liquor. I also prefer not so much dark sugar/syrup, so I used light brown sugar. This is a keeper!"
