Dark Chocolate Pecan Pie
“Pecan pie isn’t the variety I typically reach for, but it’s a whole other story when grandma’s is around. Her pecan pie boasts a chewy texture underneath a layer of toasty pecans. Pecan pie is usually so sweet that 1 bite will make your eyes cross. Her’s is wonderfully balanced. It’s a sugary pie, of course, but the reduction of sugar and a little sea salt easily lift this pecan pie out of the cloyingly sweet/eyes-crossing category.”
Pecan pie is a Thanksgiving favorite, and Sally from Sally’s Baking Addiction has given it a little facelift this year. She’s lightened up the amount of sugar in this traditionally sugar-laden pie and added a bit of dark chocolate for a deeper flavor. And really, who could resist the combination of pecans with chocolate?!
