Fudgy Pecan Pie Recipe

This started out as just a plain chocolate pie that I "dressed up" for company. Now when I serve it, guests often tell me, "Your pie looks too good to eat - but I won't let that stop me!" -Ellen Arndt, Cologne, Minnesota
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. + chilling Bake: 40 min. + chilling YIELD:6-8 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 unbaked pastry shell (9 inches)
  • 4 ounces German sweet chocolate, chopped
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans

  • 1 cup whipped topping
  • TOPPING:
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 tablespoon confectioners' sugar

Directions

  • 1. Line unpricked pastry shell with a double thickness of heavy-duty foil. Bake at 450° for 5 minutes. Remove foil and set shell aside. Reduce heat to 375°.
  • 2. In a heavy saucepan, melt chocolate and butter. Remove from the heat; stir in milk and water. Add a small amount of hot chocolate mixture to eggs; return all to the pan. Stir in vanilla and salt. Pour into shell; sprinkle with nuts. Cover edges with foil. Bake for 35 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Remove to a wire rack to cool completely.

"I made this for the first time when I was a newlywed for my first Christmas as a married woman. It is now a Christmas tradition at my house (10 years later)! I love chocolate and this recipe delivers. If you are looking for something a little bit different than the traditional pecan pie or chocolate pecan pie, give this a try!"
