tipsy chocolate pecan tart

Recipe by

When you get a call that someone is "stopping" by and need a fast, easy recipe that looks like it took you days to make, this is it! I put it in a tart pan as it gives it a nice presentation too. And it's not sweet like regular pecan pie (nor as "jelly") and that's why this is my husbands favorite dessert!

How To Make tipsy chocolate pecan tart

  • 1
    Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Put pie crust into pie pan or tart (I prefer the tart pan-nicer presentation) and crimp edges. Sprinkle chocolate onto crust and sprinkle pecans on top of choolate

    Whisk together eggs, sugar, corn syrup, vanilla, salt and whiskey and pour over nuts. Place this pie onto a rimmed cookie sheet before putting it in oven-it tends to "overflow" and is very hard to clean the oven after! Bake 20 minutes at 425 degrees, then reduce oven to 350 degrees and bake until pie is set but slightly "wobbly" in center, about 35 minutes more
