1 cup dark corn syrup*
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup (1 stick) Country Crock® Spreadable Sticks, melted
1 tsp. vanilla extract
Breyers® Natural Vanilla Ice Cream
Preheat oven to 350°.
Roll pastry into 14-inch circle on lightly floured surface. Lift and press into 9-inch deep-dish pie plate. Fold excess pastry under and press together to form a thick crust, then flute edges. Fill with pecans, then chocolate; chill.
Meanwhile, lightly beat eggs in medium bowl, with fork. Stir in corn syrup, sugar, Country Crock® Spreadable Sticks and vanilla. Slowly pour into pie crust over pecans and chocolate.
Bake 50 minutes or until center is set, covering edge of crust with aluminum foil after 30 minutes. Cool completely on wire rack. Serve with Breyers® Natural Vanilla Ice Cream.
