      1/2   Lb           Butter
      1/2   Lb           Cream cheese
    2       Ts           Vanilla
    2       C            Flour
    1       C            Pecans
    4       Tb           Unsalted butter
    2                    Eggs
    1       C            Dark corn syrup
      1/4   C            Molasses
      1/2   C            Brown sugar
    1       T            Vanilla extract
      1/4   C            Chocolate chips (or more)
   FOR DOUGH: CREAM BUTTER, CREAM CHEESE and vanilla together in a mixer or
   processor. Reduce speed to low and add the flour. Mix until just
   incorporated. Remove the dough, form into three balls and wrap in plastic
   wrap. Chill one hour before using. Uncooked dough can be frozen up to two
   months. Freeze uncooked balls of dough or freeze dough in pie tins. Makes
   three 10-inch pies.
   FOR FILLING: MIX PECANS AND BUTTER in a small saucepan over medium heat and
   cook until butter turns a golden color. Remove from heat and set aside. In
   a mixing bowl combine eggs, corn syrup, molasses, brown sugar and vanilla.
   Mix until smooth and then mix in the pecans and butter. Pour this filling
   into the pie crust and sprinkle with the chocolate chips. Place on the
   middle rack of a preheated 350F oven and bake until the center of the pie
   is set, about 35 to 40 minutes. Remove from the oven and let the pie cool
   before serving.
