  1. To Make Crust: In a medium bowl, combine flour and salt and mix well. With two knives or a pastry blender, cut in butter until mixture is in fine crumbs. Gradually add just enough ice water so that the pastry holds together. Form into a ball, then flatten into a disk. Handle as little as possible. Wrap tightly in plastic wrap and chill for at least 1 to 2 hours.
  2. Roll out crust on lightly floured surface with lightly floured rolling pin. Turn crust over frequently and lightly re-flour work surface and rolling pin as necessary. Crust should be rolled into a circle about 13 inches in diameter. Fit crust into an ungreased 9 inch pie plate of heatproof glass; form a high-standing rim, trimming excess from edges and pinching or fluting rim decoratively as desired.
  3. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (205 C). Thoroughly prick crust all over with fork. Chill for at least 10 minutes while oven heats. Bake in preheated oven 5 minutes (crust will not brown). Remove to rack and cool completely before filling.
  4. Leave oven at 400 degrees F (205 C). Break up pecan pieces and sprinkle them evenly on the bottom of the cooled pie shell.
  5. To Make Filling: In a small bowl beat eggs to combine. Add espresso powder and beat to mix. Let stand at least 10 minutes, beating occasionally to dissolve espresso.
  6. In a medium bowl cream softened butter, sugar, and vanilla until light and fluffy. Beat in cocoa and salt. Add egg/espresso mixture 1/3 at a time, beating after each addition, until smooth. Stir in corn syrup. This mixture will be like custard and it will be thick.
  7. Pour mixture slowly over pecans in pie shell. If any pecans do not get completely covered by the filling, submerge them until they do. Let stand 2 to 3 minutes; with toothpick or tip of sharp knife, pierce any remaining air bubbles (during this standing period, pecans may rise to top of pie).
  8. Bake in preheated oven for 10 minutes. Reduce heat from 400 degrees F (205 C) to 350 degrees F (175 C) and bake 33 to 37 minutes longer (or until edges are cracked and risen but pie center still quivers slightly when pie is shaken gently). Do not over-bake! If pie begins to brown excessively, cover top lightly with foil. Remove from oven; cool on rack before serving.

The taste combination is phenomenal, but the cooking instructions were incomplete. The recipe says the final mix should be thick and custardy; however, it was much more runny than described. I...

This is an amazing pie recipe. I made a double batch and there was extra for a little personal pie. The previous rater must have made some errors in cooking, because the consistancy and color ...

This pie is amazing... The batter, for me came out a bit runnier than expected, but I think if I had beaten the batter more thoroughly like for 45 sec to a minute between each egg addtion it wo...

This came out tasting great. I did modify it a bit. I used a teaspoon of instant coffee dissolved in a tablespoon of water and then added the eggs. I used a ready-made pie crust and pre-baked as...

I made this into 24 pre-made tart shells and they turned out great! I baked them for 8 minutes at 400F and then 10 minutes at 350F. I would make this again and consider adding a dark chocolat...

Delicious!! Next time I may cut down on the brown sugar just a bit, possibly a tiny bit more coffee and cocoa. This was really really good, thank you!!

We loved this pie! It's one of the best I've ever had! I was searching to bake a pie with ingredients that I had at home, and found this. I used an already made pie crust, which made this even e...

This pie is absolutely delicious! I followed the recipe exactly and experienced no problems. The result was gooey and delectable. I suggest pairing a slice with a cup of coffee to offset the ric...
