Corrie's Kentucky Pie

A super delicious pie from Paula Deen (Picture to follow)




4 large eggs, lightly beaten
2 cups sugar
1 (12-ounce)package semisweet morsels, melted
1 cup sifted self-rising flour
1 cup (2 sticks)butter, melted
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups chopped pecans
2 (9 inch) deep dish unbaked pie shells or 3 (9 inch) unbaked regular pie shells

Ice Cream or Whipped Cream, optional

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Combine eggs, sugar and melted chocolate in large bowl. Add flour and mix well, stirring in remaining ingredients except for pie shells. Bake 30-40 minutes. I found when I made this I had to bake it 55 minutes.

Serve warm with ice cream. Freezes well!

I like your recipes but I wanted to share some information with you. You say you are married to a Pakistani so does that make him Muslim? I don't know if you are aware that vanilla extract is not lawful for Muslims to consume being it is extracted from alcohol. If this is not an issue for your family, I apologize and hope I did not offend. Just wanted to share.

I'm aware of the alcohol in extract. If you go to a halal food store you can get vanilla flavoring that's alcohol free. My hubby and his family don't get too concerned with this as it's minimal and cooks off.
