Tired of the typical hot chocolate chip pie that is really good, but so common? The combination of delicious flavors in this satisfying variation brings on a cozy, content feeling that will have you adding this dessert to your list of favorites!
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large mixing bowl, beat margarine with sugars until smooth. Add eggs and mix until combined. Add remaining ingredients and mix; divide between two greased nine-inch (23-cm) round pans. Bake for 20–25 minutes, or until golden and center is still a bit wiggly.
While the pie is baking, blend maple-pecan sauce ingredients in a food processor until creamy. Spread over pie and garnish with pecan halves; serve warm.
I served with Abe’s Vanilla-Caramel Ice Cream — out of this world!
