Welcome to Home Shalom!

Welcome to Home Shalom and Shalom Farm. We pray your visit here be blessed. We are learning to walk in the Ways (Torah) of our Father YHWH and follow Y'shua, His Messiah until He returns to "set things straight". We call it a "Messi-Life". Our walk is neither tidy nor perfect, but it is filled with passion, devotion and desire to serve our King. We are learning to be humble servants, and to be good stewards of the things that He has entrusted to us: His Word, our marriage, our children, our family, our community, our health, and our farm. Hitch your horse and stay a while--our door is always open!

Chocolate Pecan Pie

This is a scrumptiously rich pie that makes a wonderful Erev Shabbat Dessert. It came from a cookbook called HELP! My Family is Hungry. It is a simple to make, but very rich and "extra special. The author says she likes it best gooey and warm. However, my family prefers is after it has cooled and set up. SO it makes a great make ahead dessert! (You can see which way your family prefers it.) Just a little sliver will do it either way...because it is RICH. Because it is so rich, a little vanilla ice cream is always quite nice with it. :-)

The recipe called for an 8" pie pan (but we only have 9". So that is what we used and it turned out wonderfully). You could use any pie crust with this pie. A nut crust, graham cracker, a roll out and press in crust all would work well. We like to use a short bread recipes we are partial too and press that into a crust.

Pie crust of choice
1/2C butter
1/2C chocolate chips
1C sugar (could reduce to 1/2!)
2 eggs, beaten together in a small bowl
1/2C chopped pecans
1/2C coconut

  • Preheat oven to 350F
  • Line pie plate with crust and refrigerate or prebake as needed.
  • In a saucepan, melt butter
  • Add chocolate chips, and stir until melted.
  • Remove from heat, stir in remaining ingredients.
  • Pour into prepare shell.
  • Bake 35 minutes

Easy as pie!

We love your recipes! We made this pie last night; and WOWZA! THANK you for sharing...
I was trying to think of a clever name. It's a perfect pie for a person like me who cannot decide between a COCONUT pie, or the CHOCOLATE pie, or my equal favorite PECAN pie... THIS lovely and SUPER SIMPLE pie is an EXCELLENT COMBINATION of all three!!
Another winner from your kitchen, thank you for sharing!!
