This classic dessert is a crowd favorite. Served warm with a scoop or two of ice cream, this favored baking recipe is perfect for any holiday. Add semi-sweet chocolate chips or bits of baking chocolate for a chocolaty take on this pie recipe. Some like it with a slice of cheese on top. This will definitely be a hit at any of your upcoming family gatherings-especially in the colder months.

Chef's Notes

For a richer flavor in  this traditional pecan pie recipe, try using dark corn syrup. Both variations received high marks in our Test Kitchens.
