Pecan Brownie Pie

I’m so behind on blogging!  This was the pie I made for Thanksgiving but I’ve been working and trying to get ready for Christmas and my corgi Finn has been really sick and so I am woefully behind!  Oh well, you could always make this pie for Christmas!  I loved it so much.  I don’t really love pie but this was more brownie than pie so I was in heaven and so was my daughter Courtney.

1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk

1/2 cup sugar

2 cups chocolate chips, divided

3 eggs

1 tablespoon vanilla

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon salt

3 cups pecan halves, divided

2 tablespoons milk

1 refrigerated or homemade pie crust

1/4 cup white chocolate chips

1 – 2 tablespoons milk

1  Preheat oven to 350.

2  For the filling, in a medium saucepan, simmer sweetened condensed milk and sugar over medium heat, whisking steadily, for 3 – 5 minutes or until sugar dissolves.  Turn off heat and whisk in 1 1/2 cups of the chocolate chips.  In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, vanilla, cinnamon, and salt.  Gently whisk chocolate mixture into egg mixture, about 1/2 cup at a time, until well blended.  Stir in 2 1/2 cups pecans.

3  To bake the pie, fill pie crust with filling.  Bake on center rack for 35 – 40 minutes, or until center is fairly firm.  Cool completely.

4  For the chocolate sauce, place remaining 1/2 cup chocolate chips and milk in a small microwavable bowl and microwave on high for 30 seconds to 1 minute, stirring after 30 seconds, until chocolate has melted and sauce is smooth.  Pour sauce over pie and let cool.

5  For the white chocolate glaze, microwave white chocolate chips and milk for 15 seconds, stir and repeat in 10 second intervals until chocolate has melted.  Drizzle white chocolate glaze over pie and sprinkle with remaining pecans.
