So this is another one of grandma's secret recipes (shh) from what is left of one of her old cookbooks. It is great made a day ahead of time, quite simple, and absolutely delicious!
Mocha Pecan Pie:
Preheat oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.
1/3 cup butter
1 cup flour
3 TBS. water
Cut butter into flour until combined. Stir in water until dough forms a ball. Roll out, and place in pie dish.
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup maple syrup
2 TBS. strong coffee
2 TBS. flour
3 large eggs
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup toasted pecans
Melt chocolate chips and butter over low heat. Cool to room temperature. Combine with all ingredients except for the pecans. Pour mixture over pecans, and stir just enough to coat the pecans. Pour into your unbaked pie shell, and bake @ 400 degrees Fahrenheit for ten minutes. Reduce heat to 350 degrees Fahrenheit for another 30 minutes, or until filling is set but still moist. Cool completely before cutting, and serve with a large dollop of whipped cream.
