Preparation Directions


Heat oven to 350°F. Line baking sheet with parchment paper.


To prepare pie shell, on clean, lightly floured work surface, roll out dough with rolling pin until it forms a 10-inch circle. Fold circle in half, place it in 9-inch pie plate so that edges of circle drop over rim, unfold dough to completely cover pie plate. Using thumb and index finger, crimp edges of pie shell. Brush edges of pie shell with heavy cream to create a perfect, golden brown finish.


To prepare filling, using electric mixer on medium speed, mix eggs, sugar, corn syrup, melted butter and vanilla together until they achieve a cream color. Remove 1 cup of mixture and set aside. Stir pecans into remaining mixture until they are combined evenly throughout.


To assemble pie, sprinkle chocolate chips across bottom of pie shell. Pour pecan filling over chocolate chips, spreading evenly across. Stir 1/2 cup Caramel Sauce into cup of reserved filling, making sure to blend well. Pour caramel mixture over pecan filling, spreading it evenly across.


To bake, place pie plate on prepared baking sheet and bake about 50 minutes, or until middle of the pie is firm to the touch. Transfer pie plate to wire cooling rack and allow pie to cool and set for 1 1/2 hours before serving. To serve, drizzle top of pie with Hot Fudge Sauce and Caramel Sauce.
Turtle Pecan Pie can be served cold or at room temperature.
*Recipes for Hot Fudge Sauce and Caramel Sauce can be found in Michele Stuart's "Perfect Pies and More" cookbook.
