Updated September 9, 2014

Ingredients

  • 1 crust from 1 box (14.1 oz) refrigerated Pillsbury™ Pie Crusts (2 Count), softened as directed on box
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped pecans
  • 12 oz semisweet baking chocolate, coarsely chopped
  • 2 1/2 cups whipping (heavy) cream
  • 12 pecan halves

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 450°F. 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 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.
  • 3
    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.

  • We don't recommend using chocolate chips to make this pie as they will not produce the same smooth filling as squares of baking chocolate.
