Hey girl hey! It’s officially time to start breaking out the fine china because Thanksgiving is right around the corner. The holiday season is full of traditions and my traditions revolve around food, so it’s time to gather your family and start cooking. My grandmother has so many recipes that we make, but today I’m sharing one of my favorites: Chocolate Chip Pecan Pie!

I don’t know about you guys but my kids and I are always most excited for dessert. I’ve been brainstorming menu ideas to use for our Thanksgiving featst this year, and this dessert is a sure-fire hit! It’s at the top (or the chronological bottom) of the list!

for the crust:

  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter cold
  • 8-10 tbsp cold water

for the pie:

  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 3 eggs
  • 6 tbsp butter melted
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp all purpose flour
  • 1 3/4 cup pecans
  • 1 1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Make your crust in a food processor by mixing the sugar, flour, water, and butter all together. Then roll it out and press it into your pie plate. For the filling you’ll want to combine the honey, butter, eggs, and vanilla in a bowl first. Next, mix together the flour and sugar and add them into the bowl of wet ingredients. After this you add the pecans and chocolate chips! Then pour your filling into the crust pan and bake for 35-45 minutes at 350 degrees. Cover the crust edges with foil to keep them from burning! Let it refrigerate for about an hour and serve it with a ton of whip cream!

In need of some new cookware? Consider using one of our measuring cups and spoons from the shop to bake this pie and then display it on our Furniture Leg Table Riser that’s made right here in Texas.

I hope you grab your loved ones, put on some music, and go make this delicious pie while dancing around the kitchen! Adam, Sarah and I just love dancing while we cook! Also let me know in the comments if you use this recipe and if it’s a repeat for next year’s Thanksgiving. XO!
