Chocolate Pecan Pie!

October 13, 2015

I’m so excited to partner with Crisco as part of the Crisco Scratch Academy baking school! Visit the Crisco Heritage Kitchen site ( to discover new takes on traditional pie classics, baking tips, or find inspiration for your next baking adventure.

The Crisco Pie & Baking Hotline is a great resource for home bakers, and offers assistance and tips for baking pies. You can call the hotline 24 hours a day to get answers to questions such as, “how do I keep my crust from becoming soggy?” or “how long can I freeze an unbaked pie?” The hotline is celebrating its 10th anniversary and for the first time, home bakers can seek help online at

For this recipe, I used the Crisco Baking Sticks All-Vegetable Shortening which produce higher, lighter-textured baked goods and have 50% less saturated fat than butter and zero grams trans fat per serving.

Pie crust from scratch:
4 cups Pillsbury Best All Purpose flour
2 sticks Crisco Baking Sticks All-Vegetable Shortening
4 tablespoon white sugar
3 teaspoon salt
1 egg
3/4 cup water

Chocolate pecan filling:
