I think of a turtle pie as being thick and muddy with chocolate. The rich, tangy stickiness of pecan pie filling blends perfectly with this new milk chocolate ganache “mud” topping. Both deserve a decorative little turtle perched on top.

Roll the Dough

Remove the dough from the refrigerator. If necessary, let it sit for about 10 minutes, or until it is malleable enough to roll.

On a floured pastry cloth, pastry mat, or between two sheets of lightly floured plastic wrap, roll the dough into a ⅛ inch thick disc 13 inches in diameter, or large enough to line the bottom of the pie plate
