Sometimes you just need a warm, gooey,
buttery, chocolaty piece of pie…
This one is an easy classic…
it’s been around for a number
of years now…
I’ll tend to forget about how simple,
rich and delicious it is…
and how it just may cure
what ails you at the moment…
I made one recently for a friend
who was struggling with
some not so great medical news…
I know it did not fix everything
but every warm, chocolaty bite
was a big hug from me!
I believe pretty much
every bit of cooking magic
begins with butter,
sugar, brown sugar,
eggs and flour …
The original recipe calls
for chocolate chips
but these chocolate
chunks and I have this
when our eyes meet
on the baking aisle
there’s just no other type
of chocolate for me–
it’s chunks all the way!
With your mixer, combine
the magical ingredients that
we talked about and
then add the chocolate chunks
and the chopped pecans…
if you don’t like pecans
you can substitute with walnuts,
or if you don’t like nuts or
a family member has a nut allergy,
you can omit them altogether.
Mix the batter on low for a few
whirls until combined..
Dump it all in your prepared pie crust…
my heart belongs to the Dough Boy from
Pillsbury, so I always have them on hand…
but if you make a mean pie crust…
please go ahead and use your favorite!
Spread it evenly to the sides with
the back of a spoon…
It will look amazing like this!
Bake on 325 degrees for 55-60 minutes…
It will then look just perfect like this!
You can top it with some ice cream,
serve it with a huge cup
of cold milk or a
steaming hot cup of coffee!
There is no way to loose
with this piece of heaven!
