Why you should try this Cracker Barrel Chocolate Pecan Pie recipe

When people tell me homemade pie is difficult to make, I always tell them to start with a pecan pie. If you can measure, and stir, guess what, you can make a pecan pie.

If you like, you can start with a pre-made pie crust. I like the refrigerated ones you buy at the store, I think they taste better than the frozen ones. Frozen ones will work too, but I think the refrigerated ones taste a little better.

What can you serve this pie with?

More pie 😉 I love to serve this pie to my chocolate lovers for the holidays along with a pumpkin pie, or even an old-fashioned American apple pie. I love to serve up large slices with a dollop of whipped cream when I serve this pie.

How long will this pie last? How do you store a pecan pie?

This pie will last for 2 to 3 days when left out at room temperature. I simply lightly cover the pie with plastic wrap or aluminum foil and leave this pie out on my countertop. You could freeze this pie if you double-wrap it with plastic wrap for up to 3 months.
