Tar Heel Pie

I found this recipe on a North Carolina postcard and had to buy it just to try the recipe. It is basically a super-rich brownie pie! Needless to say, I love this pie! This is a great recipe for a gathering, just so that you are not tempted to eat too much of it yourself. It is very fudgy and I am always nervous that it isn’t done, but it is. Just watch for dryness around the edges and the crust to darken.
Tar Heel Pie
1 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup melted butter
1 cup pecans, chopped
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 eggs, scrambled
Pour melted butter over chocolate chips and stir. Blend remaining ingredients into chocolate mixture. Pour into unbaked pie shell and bake at 350 degrees F for 30 to 40 minutes.
It's THAT easy!  It is great in the Pat-in-Pan Crust.
