Chocolate Bourbon Pecan Pie

Thursday, November 24, 2005

Here's the pie I made for Av's family Thanksgiving - it's a pecan pie with bourbon and chocolate. Here's the recipe & pictures:

Chocolate Bourbon Pecan Pie

3 large eggs, lightly beaten
1 c. sugar
2 tbsp. butter, melted and cooled (so it's not super-hot when you add it to the bowl)
1 c. corn syrup (Karo)
1 tsp. vanilla
1/4 c. bourbon - I used Maker's Mark
semi-sweet chocolate chips (enough to cover the bottom of the pie crust)
pecans (enough to cover the bottom of the pie crust)
pie crust


Put chocolate chips in to cover the bottom of the pie crust:

...then, cover that with pecans. This all floats to the top when the pie cooks, so don't worry about adding the pecans to the liquid mixture:

Stir together in a bowl the sugar, eggs, butter, corn syrup, vanilla, and bourbon:

...pour that into the pie crust (the pecan pieces float right up to the top):

Bake at 375* for 40-60 minutes until it doesn't jiggle in the middle (but be careful not to overcook). This one came out perfectly...can't wait to have it for Thanksgiving supper!
