So I made a chocolate pecan pie for the Black Friday food swap. I was told it was sinful. I don't eat it, it's too rich for my blood.
We've got a manager here who is GF, and I was wondering if there are commercially available good quality frozen GF pie crusts that I could use next time to make the pie so he can have some. I know I'm not going to try GF cinnamon rolls (my usual Christmas fare), but want to try to make something that he can eat.
Alternatively, would it be feasible to make a crust-free pie? The recipe is as follows, and I'm not familiar enough with it to mess around. (I may change the amounts tomorrow, I'm running from memory, but it's all close to this.)
1 box German baker's chocolate (8 oz)
2 Tbsp butter
1 cup light corn syrup
1 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup pecans
Melt chocolate and butter together, remove from heat
Bring corn syrup and sugar to a boil, boil gently for five minutes. Add to chocolate mixture.
Pour chocolate/syrup mixture over gently whisked eggs, stirring constantly
Add pecans and vanilla, pour into crust
Bake at 375F for 45-50 minutes.
Any thoughts? Please?
