Chocolate Bourbon Pecan Pie

Here is my version of Chocolate Bourbon Pecan Pie

Use for my Derby Day Truffles or enjoy anytime as a great pie by itself.

Ingredients:

  • 1 (9 inch) Pillsbury pie shell crust
  • 1 cup pecans, chopped
  • 6 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 3/4 cup light corn syrup
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/3 cup white granulated sugar
  • 2/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup Jim Beam Bourbon (or bourbon of your choice) or water
  • 4 large eggs, beaten
  • 2 teaspoon cornmeal
  • 2 teaspoon Rodelle vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 325° F (165° C).
  2. Fit crust into a deep dish pie plate according to package directions. Crimp edges.
  3. Sprinkle pecans and chocolate evenly onto bottom of pie crust, set aside.
  4. In a small saucepan combine sugar, corn syrup, and butter or margarine. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until butter or margarine melts and sugar dissolves. About 3 minutes. Cool slightly.
  5. In a large bowl combine eggs, bourbon, cornmeal, vanilla, and salt. Mix well. Slowly pour sugar mixture into egg mixture, whisking constantly. Pour mixture into pie shell.www.dadwhats4dinner.com
