Ingredients

  • 1 pie crust 9-inch, homemade or store-bought
  • 2 cups pecans shelled, coarsely chopped
  • ¾ cup chocolate chips semi-sweet or dark
  • ¾ cup pure maple syrup
  • ¾ cup brown sugar dark
  • 3 large eggs
  • 5 Tbsp. butter melted and cooled
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • ¾ tsp. cinnamon

Serving:

  • Whipped cream
  • Additional chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. If you're not using a store-bought crust, follow the directions to make this homemade pie crust.

  2. Place the prepared dough into a 9-inch glass or ceramic pie plate. Crimp the edges decoratively and refrigerate while preparing the filling.

  3. Add the pecans to the bottom of the pie crust in a single layer and sprinkle the chocolate chips over the pecans.

  4. Whisk together the maple syrup, brown sugar, eggs, melted butter, vanilla, salt, and cinnamon in a large bowl and then pour it evenly over the nuts and chips.
  5. Bake the pie at 350 for 50-60 minutes, or until the middle no longer jiggles. If the edges of the pie crust are beginning to brown, place a pie crust shield on top after 20-30 minutes. Additionally, if the top is browning too quickly, carefully place a piece of aluminum foil over the top to prevent it from burning.

  6. Place the baked pie on a wire rack to cool completely before serving. The filling will continue to set, so it is important that you do not cut into it too soon.
  7. Serve pie with a dollop of whipped cream and additional chocolate shavings or chocolate chips. Enjoy!

Recipe Notes

Meal Prep and Storage

  • To Prep-Ahead: Make the pie dough and store it in the fridge for up to 2 days in advance. Take it out 30 minutes before rolling so that it's easier to work with.
  • To Store: The pie will keep for up to 2 hours at room temperature or up to 4-5 days in the refrigerator.
  • To Freeze: Wrap the pie or individual slices in wax paper and seal in a freezer-safe container for up to 3-4 months.
  • To Reheat: Defrost in the refrigerator, then bake in a 350°F oven for 10 minutes. You can also pop refrigerated slices in the microwave for 10-20 seconds.
