Chocolate Pecan Pie, Member dearcat

Dear Carroll. Thank you, thank you, thank you. This is the best Pecan Pie there ever was. I have been looking for this recipe for years. I learned to make it in Louisiana back in the eightys. Lost the recipe. I make it minus the alcohol. I am 76 so I have been baking for awhile. By the way, have you ever heard of Sunset Salad? It is made with lemon Jello, carrots, celery, crushed pineapple and pineapple juice. I moulded it in a loaf pan and made the home-made dressing my mother made to go with it. I still make the dressing but lost the recipe. I do not remember the amounts.
