Hazelnut Pecan Pie
With a blend of chocolate, pecans and hazelnuts, this pie tastes so good. But it’s very easy to make so you can enjoy it often. Your family and friends will think you worked for hours in the kitchen. It's great plain or with a dollop of whipped cream. Brenda Melancon, Gonzales, Louisiana
