Author: Paula Rhodes
Recipe type: Dessert – PIes
Serves: 8

 

Ingredients
Crust
  • ½ cup flour
  • ¼ cup cold butter
  • ½ cup pecans
Filling
  • ½ cup cool butter
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 2 ounces unsweetened chocolate, melted and cooled
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ to 1 chocolate-covered toffee candy bar (i.e. Heath or Skor bar), chopped

Instructions

Crust
  1. Place flour and butter in food processor. Pulse until crumbly like oatmeal.
  2. Add pecans and pulse till all pieces are slightly smaller than oatmeal.
  3. Press into 7-1/2 or 8-inch pie plate.
  4. Bake at 400 degrees for 12-13 minutes. Cool.
Filling
  1. In stand mixer, whip butter until light and smooth for 1-2 minutes. Add sugar and continue to whip for 2 minutes. Add chocolate and beat another minute. Add one egg. Mix for 2 minutes on medium. Add second egg and beat for 3-5 minutes or however long it takes to dissolve the sugar completely.
  2. Taste it and see if you feel any graininess on your tongue. If so, keep mixing. Undissolved sugar will make you think you are eating a sand pie which kinda puts a damper on the whole experience.
  3. Spoon filling into cooled crust and refrigerate until firm. Sprinkle with chopped Heath or Skor Bars. Whipped cream wouldn’t be bad either.
