I have great memories of first eating this amazing pie while visiting with a beautiful Southern Belle named Hallie Smith in North Carolina. Miles and years separate us now. Whenever I make this pie, I wrap up with warm, sweet memories of friends and a nice cup of coffee. Thank you Hallie and Burlington Assembly for being a beautiful part of our lives.
Mix 1 cup of sugar, 1 cup of Karo syrup, and 4 beaten eggs in mixing bowl. Stir well.
Add the 1/2 cup melted butter, 1 teaspoon of vanilla, 6 oz. chocolate chips and 1 cup of pecans. Stir well.
Pour batter into each of the two pie shells creating thin layers. Be careful to divide all of the chocolate chips and nuts evenly. Bake at 350 degrees for 40-45 minutes. Get ready for warm, cookie-like yum! Great with vanilla ice-cream.
