Chocolate Chip Pie

This is a recipe that a friend emailed to me from, knowing it is right up my alley. She was right! I couldn't resist- I had to make it! It is kind of like pecan pie meets chocolate chip cookie. Very rich, chocolaty and just yummy! I didn't have any pecans, so I just used extra chocolate chips. I also followed the suggestion of one of the reviewers and added about 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1/2 tsp of salt and 1/2 tsp of vanilla- kind of like when you make a chocolate chip cookie. But, many gave the recipe 5 stars making just as listed! It is very easy!

(I didn't have a ref. pie crust, so I made my own. That is why it looks a little funny, but it tasted great!!!)

1 cup white sugar
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 (9 in) pie shell

1) Preheat oven to 325 deg.

2) Combine cooled melted butter, sugar, eggs, pecans, flour and chocolate chips; mix well. Pour the mixture into the unbaked pastry shell and bake in the preheated oven for about 1 hour. Let cool and serve.

Ooooooh so good!
