At Thanksgiving my mom always made Pecan Pie and my sister, Leraine, made Chocolate Pie. I’d go for the Chocolate first and because it was Thanksgiving, I felt like I needed Pecan Pie, too. I’d cut a sliver of each, put them together, and eat them as a single slice of pie. This month’s release is a flawless blend of those two already perfect treats — a Chocolate Chess Pecan Pie with a Chocolate Cookie Crust.
This pie renders me speechless and that’s not something I’m known for. It’s fudgy filling studded with nuts will stop you in your tracks. I hope you enjoy this decadent, chocolaty (but not too chocolaty) pie as you celebrate Thanksgiving with family and friends.
Turns out you really can have it all (at least when it comes to pie).
