Cherry Chocolate Pecan Pie Recipe
- 3/4 cup dried cherries or dried cranberries
- 1/2 cup brandy or cherry juice blend
- 1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 cup canola oil
- 3 tablespoons 2% milk
- 1/3 cup butter, softened
- 1-1/2 cups sugar
- 3 large eggs
- 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup chopped pecans
- 2 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped
- Chocolate whipped cream, optional
- 1. In a small bowl, combine cherries and brandy. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.
- 2. In a small bowl, combine the flour, sugar and salt. Combine oil and milk; using a fork, stir oil mixture into flour mixture just until blended. Pat evenly onto the bottom and up the sides of a greased 9-in. pie plate; set aside. Drain cherries, reserving 1 tablespoon brandy; set aside.
- 3. For the filling, in a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs and reserved brandy. Combine flour and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture. Fold in the pecans, chocolate and cherries; pour into prepared pastry.
- 4. Bake at 325° for 40-45 minutes or until golden brown. Cover edges with foil during the last 15 minutes to prevent overbrowning if necessary. Cool on a wire rack. Serve with whipped cream if desired. Refrigerate leftovers. Yield: 8 servings.
Editor's Note:For chocolate whipped cream, beat 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream until it begins to thicken. Add 2 tablespoons chocolate syrup and beat until stiff peaks form.

Reviews for Cherry Chocolate Pecan Pie
"I was VERY skeptical when a customer asked me to bake this for a birthday party, but it turned out wonderfully.@viennarose7, the photo does not show a double crust, the top of the pie just browns and crusts over to look like one. Here's a photo sans whipped cream that's a much better depiction:https://scontent-dft4-1.xx.fbcdn.net/t31.0-8/14711229_10153792305892890_7133929771929580607_o.jpg."
