Yield

12 servings

Ingredients

1 box Pillsbury® refrigerated pie crusts, softened as directed on box
1/4 cup finely chopped pecans
12 oz semi-sweet baking chocolate, coarsely chopped
2 1/2 cups whipping (heavy) cream
12 pecan halves

Directions

Preheat oven to 450°F (232°C). Make pie crust as directed on box for One-Crust Baked Shell using 9-inch glass pie plate. Before baking, sprinkle chopped pecans over bottom of crust; lightly press into crust.

Bake for 9 to 11 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool completely, about 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, in large bowl, place chocolate. In 2-quart saucepan, heat 2 cups of the whipping cream over medium heat just until it begins to boil. Pour over chocolate. With electric mixer on low speed, beat 1 minute or until chocolate mixture is smooth. Pour into cooled baked shell. Refrigerate at least 4 hours or until serving time.

Just before serving, in small bowl, beat remaining 1/2 cup whipping cream with electric mixer on high speed until stiff peaks form. Spoon or pipe whipped cream around outer edge of pie. Top each serving with pecan half.
