When Tippins Restaurant went out of business I was so sad at the thought of never having this pie again. It was just the best place to go for a late night coffee and pie "decompress" with a girlfriend. Then Hen House markets secured all of Tippins old pie recipes and started selling them in their stores. It still wasn't the same for me. I want to sit down with warm, fresh made pie and coffee and chat my bestie up for an hour. Now I can. So can you! Enjoy this pie warm with or without vanilla bean ice cream and a steamy cup of great coffee...and a friend.
light corn syrup
pure vanilla extract
heaping with pecan halves
heaping with mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
homemade or store bought crust (bottom only)
1Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Prepare pie pan with crust, piercing the bottom and sides slightly with a fork and crimping the edge. Scatter the pecans and chips evenly over the bottom.
2Mix the remaining 5 ingredients together and pour into the pie crust. Bake for 45 minutes.
