One Pie Crust Shell

Filling Ingredients:
1/2 stick Unsalted Butter, (room temperature)
2 oz. Unsweetened Chocolate
3 lg. Eggs
1 cup Sugar
3/4 cup Sugar Cane Syrup (recipe below)
1/2 tspn. pure Vanilla Extract

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

2. Take your pie crust out of the freezer, if frozen.

3. In a small saucepan, melt the butter and chocolate over medium-low heat, remove from heat and once melted to cool. In a large mixing bowl, beat the eggs until lemon colored and frothy, blend in the sugar. Stir in the sugar syrup, vanilla, chocolate liqueur, salt, and the melted butter and chocolate mixture. Keep stirring until well blended.

4. Arrange the pecans on the bottom of the pie crust, carefully pour the chocolate mixture over it. Bake until the filling is set, lightly puffed, and crisp looking, approximately 45 minutes.
