1 (9 inch) prepared pastry crust
1 cup chocolate morsels
3 Tbsp. milk
4 eggs, slightly beaten
3 Tbsp. butter, melted
2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
1 cup dark brown corn syrup
1 cup sugar
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp. ground allspice
1/4 tsp. salt
1 1/2 cups pecan halves

Preheat oven to 425F. Line pie plate with crust. Partially bake crust 7 minutes. Remove and set aside. Immediately reduce oven to 325F. Heat and stir chocolate morsels and milk in small saucepan over low heat until smooth. Pour chocolate evenly over crust, set aside. Mix slightly beaten eggs with remaining ingredients in a large bowl. Slowly pour mixture over chocolate layer. Place ring of aluminum foil around edges of crust to prevent over browning. Bake 55 to 60 minutes or until filling is puffed, but center is still soft enough to move, like gelatin, when shaken gently. Tent pie with foil if crust browns too quickly. Cool on wire rack.
