Holiday Pecan Pretzel Pie

This is a remake of the classic holiday dessert, the pecan pie. This adds in chocolate, peanut butter, and pretzels for a nice sweet and salty treat. It is quite tasty and full of flavor and sure to please even the pickiest of people.

9" Pie Crust (Frozen or Homemade)
1 Cup of Light Corn Syrup
2 Cups of Halved Pecans
1 Cup of broken up Tiny Twist Pretzels (roughly 20 pretzels)
1 TBSP Brown Sugar
1 TSP Ground Cinnamon
1/2 TSP Nutmeg
2 Eggs
1 TSP Vanilla
1/2 Cup Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
1/2 Cup Reeses Peanut Butter Chips
1/4 TSP Kosher Salt
1 TSP Lemon Zest

Preheat Oven to 350 Degrees.

1: Combine eggs, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, zest, salt, sugar, and corn syrup in a large mixing bowl and whisk together until everything is blended well. Add in pecans, pretzels, and the baking chips and stir together until every thing is well mixed together.

2: Pour filling into the pie crust and level it out. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes, then cover with a piece of aluminum foil and continue baking for another 15-20 minutes. The pie is done when the crust is golden brown and the filling is bubbly and hot.

3: Allow the pie to cool before serving, this allows the filling to thicken up slightly. Chill, or serve at room temperature. Serve with vanilla ice cream and some whipped cream, and enjoy.

So bake this pie up, have fun with it, and hopefully it can become a classic in your house as well.

~Bon Appetite~
