Good afternoon Serious Eats!
My wife Barbara and I love Chocolate Pecan Pie!
We have changed the recipe for this contest and think we have created a winner of a PI / Pie.
We decided to melt the dark chocolate chips, then add the melted chocolate to the sugar mixture.
This created a rich creamy decadent chocolate caramel flavor.
My wife and I taste tested the pie last night and agree that the pies wonderful flavor will melt in your mouth and leave
you asking for another piece.
Hopefully all who try this recipe will think it is as wonderful as we do.

Step 1: Crust Ingredients:

Crust Ingredients for a two-crust 10" pie:
1 cup shortening, (chilled Crisco preferred)
2-2/3 cups flour,  (King Arthur preferred)
1 teaspoon salt
2-3 tablespoons sugar, (gives the crust a slightly sweet taste)
7-8 tablespoons Sparkling Selzer Water, (Canfield's Sparkling Selzer Water preferred)

Ooooh! So beautifully decorated! Do you remember where you got your cookie cutter letters?
Williams-Sonoma sells a little metal can that contains the entire alphabet of letters. They are about 1 1/2&quot; in size. Ck out their website. :) <br>
Good morning Penolopy;<br>My wife and I purchased those plastic cut-outs over twenty years ago and really don't remember where they came from. I would think you could purchase alphabet letter cut-outs from almost any cooking store. <br>Thanks Penolopy for your nice comment on my pie.<br>Rick Lichman
Looks great I can't wait to make it myself great instructions and wonderful presentation.
