Pie Class – Super Sweet Chocolate Pecan Pie

Classes are coming to an end.  I love them, but I am ready to claim my weekends back.  Again, two pies – chocolate pecan pie and chocolate walnut raisin pie.

The corn syrup base to which we add the nuts.  I was happy to learn that one could substitute maple syrup or rice syrup instead of corn syrup.  IMG_6459

Chocolate cookie dough for the pie crust.  That’s right, it’s cookie dough!

Now, we didn’t chill our pies long enough before baking so, my wavy pie crust, failed to stay up while baking.  Next time, no rushing!

When I got home, I made thumbprint cookies with the leftover cookie dough.  A milk chocolate centre.IMG_6471

I do enjoy pecan pie and the cookie dough crust was an awesome touch.  A tad too sweet for me however, but it was an office hit.  I had line-ups of people clamouring for a slice.  This pie is a winner. =)
