Chocolate caramel pecan pie

Method

For the pie crust

  • Preheat the oven to 200οC (390ο F) set to fan. 
  • In a food processor, beat the flour with the butter for 1 minute, until the butter is completely dissolved.
  • Add the cream cheese, the icing sugar, and beat for a few more seconds until there is a uniform and smooth dough. 
  • Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate it for 30 minutes to become firm.
  • Dust your working surface with flour and roll out the dough into a rectangle that is 2 cm larger than the size of the tart pan so that it covers its sides as well. 
  • Spread the dough into a 20x25 cm rectangle tart pan and cover its bottom and sides. 
  • Cover the surface of the pie crust with parchment paper and add raw legumes or pie weights.
  • Bake in the oven for 15 minutes. 
  • Remove the pie weights and bake for 10 more minutes.
  • Remove the tart pan from the oven and set it aside to cool completely. 

For the filling

  • Lower the oven’s temperature to 160οC (320ο F).
  • Place a pot over medium heat and add the butter, the dulce de leche, the brown sugar, the dark brown sugar, and 1 pinch of salt. 
  • Allow 2 minutes for the butter to melt and for the sugar to be dissolved. 
  • Remove the pot from the heat and let the mixture slightly cool for 5 minutes. 
  • Whisk the eggs and the vanilla extract into a bowl
  • Finely chop half of the pecans and add them into the bowl along with the pot’s mixture and a little salt. Keep whisking for a while until all the ingredients are homogenized.
  • Pour the mixture over the pie crust. 
  • Finely chop the chocolate and scatter it over the pie.
  • Bake in the oven for 45-50 minutes, until the filling is firm.
