stacey i forgot that you haven't had pecan pie i must warn you  to use pie shields if you have them   or use tin foil around the edges  also nut pies  must be completely cool before cutting       to set the custard    otherwise it will run out and the pie will not be the same and nikki, i always add extras too              just like chocolate chips hmmmm?     might throw a few of them on top of pie

I have made Chocolate Pecan Pies and I have to say they are awesome.  Pecan pie by itself is rich but when you add chocolate to it it is even richer.  I tend to go with darker chocolate just because the pie is so sweet.

Nikki - I agree with you about making chocolate pecan pie - my favorite, but I also add a bit of bourbon to kick it up a bit.  I had this for the first time quite a few years ago and have enjoyed it many times since then.  Unfortunately, I am the only in our family to enjoy pecan pie and I refuse to eat a whole pie by myself, so I tend to only make this when going to friends' homes for dinner and I bring this.

Same here.  No one else likes Pecan Pie.  When I wanted some I would have to go to a place like Bakers Square and buy 1 slice.  I just can't bring myself to make one and be the only one to eat the pie. 
I have made the pie, just the filling and poured the filling into muffin pan that way I have just the crunchy pecan part and no crust. I line the muffin pan with liners so they come out of the pan easily. After all the best part or the Pecan Pie is the filling who wants to waste the calories on the crust!

I'd vote for rich chocolate brownies with rocky road ice cream on top!!  I like many others love chocolate!!   A big chocolate chip cookie warm out of the oven with chocolate ice cream and fudge sauce on top sounds good too!!  I guess I'd go for a beautiful chocolate cake with rich chocolate icing and of course served with ice cream too!!

Embarassed By choice I spend so much happy time in the kitchen and the oven is always on.   Why can't I make pie?

But "Popular Dessert"?   With me it's COOKIES ..... and candy.

Nikki - I just saw your post about skipping the crust and putting the pie filling in muffin cups with liners.  How ingenious!  I never eat the pie crust anyway, never have been a fan of pie crust, so this is perfect for me.  Have you tried freezing them so that you don't eat all of them?  That would be my problem and I certainly don't need to eat more than one at a time.

The ones I made could be frozen as there was not much of the custard part of the pie.  I don't think a regular pecan pie could be frozen.  The filling gets all yucky and splits and weeps.

Wink That's another reason to only make COOKIES.   They freeze beautifully -- and don't have a crust! Tongue out

Nikki - Thanks for your advice about the pecan pies.  I guess I'll have to make them at a time when we have a get together with our friends so I can give them the rest to take home.  I do wonder how the commercial bakers do it when they make them to be frozen.
