Chocolate Cranberry Pecan Pie

Chocolate cranberry pecan pie. I made this for our Christmas dessert. The original recipe, from Miss Grimble Presents Delicious Desserts by Sylvia Balser Hirsch, was for a New Orleans chocolate-pecan pie, and the tartness of the fresh cranberries I added helped to offset the richness somewhat. Dried cranberries can be used instead, though I like the juiciness that the fresh ones added.Posted by Picasa
