2½ cups all-purpose flour
½ cup chilled unsalted butter
⅛ teaspoon sea salt
5 to 7 tablespoons ice water
¼ cup unsalted butter
¾ cups granulated sugar
¾ cups light corn syrup
¼ cup chocolate chips plus extra to garnish
½ cup Pecan Valley Pecan Pieces
1. Preheat oven to 350ºF.
2. Prepare pie crust by blending the flour, butter and salt in a food processor. Add ice water a little at a time while blending. Do this until it forms a dough ball (you can also do this in a bowl using a pastry blender or forks to mix).
3. Melt butter and set aside.
4. In a large mixing bowl mix eggs and sugar; add syrup and melted butter. Spread chocolate chips and pecan pieces over bottom of pie crust. Pour egg and sugar mixture over chocolate and pecans.
5. Bake in a preheated oven for about 35 minutes until pie is golden brown. Top with Whipped Cream, if desired.
