Yield

10 servings

Crust Ingredients

1 box Pillsbury® refrigerated pie crusts, softened as directed on box

Pecan Filling Ingredients

2 eggs
1/3 cup granulated (white) sugar
1/2 cup dark corn syrup
3 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
1/8 teaspoon salt, if desired
1/2 cup chopped pecans

Chocolate Filling Ingredients

1 cup hot milk
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 (12 ounce) bag semi-sweet chocolate chips (2 cups)

Topping Ingredients

1 cup whipping cream
2 tablespoons confectioners' (powdered) sugar
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
chocolate curls, if desired

Directions

Preheat oven to 350°F (177°C). Place pie crust in 9-inch glass pie plate as directed on box for One-Crust Filled Pie.

In small bowl, beat eggs with electric mixer on medium speed until well blended. Add granulated sugar, corn syrup, butter and salt; beat 1 minute. Stir in pecans. Pour into crust-lined pie plate. Cover crust edge with 2- to 3-inch-wide strips of foil to prevent excessive browning; remove foil during last 15 minutes of bake time.

Bake for 40 to 55 minutes or until center of pie is puffed and golden brown. Cool 1 hour.

Meanwhile, in blender or food processor, place chocolate filling ingredients. Cover; blend about 1 minute or until smooth. Refrigerate until mixture is slightly thickened but not set, about 1 hour 30 minutes.

Gently stir chocolate filling; pour over cooled pecan filling in crust. Refrigerate at least 1 hour or until firm before serving.

Just before serving, in small bowl, beat whipping cream, powdered sugar and 1/4 teaspoon vanilla with mixer on high speed until stiff peaks form. Spoon or pipe whipped cream over filling. Garnish with chocolate curls.
