Chocolate Pecan Bourbon Pie!

 

Chocolate Pecan Bourbon PieI mean really! Bring together chocolate, pecans and bourbon and everyone will be your friend! This dessert is absolutely delightful and super easy to make. And, once I tasted it, I crossed Pecan Pie off on my list of foods that I don’t like. Because of this Chocolate Pecan Bourbon Pie recipe, I’m a fan now! Maybe it’s the addition of the chocolate and/or the bourbon (happy face!). You really don’t need it, but adding some vanilla ice-cream or whipped cream makes this dessert complete perfection.Chocolate Pecan Bourbon Pie

Enjoy!

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 Tablespoons water
  • 1 egg yolk, (save the egg white)

Pie Filling Ingredients:

  • 1 egg white
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup dark corn syrup
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 Tablespoons Bourbon
  • 3/4 cup semi-sweet mini-chocolate chips

Instructions

Pie Crust:

  1. In the bowl of a food processor, place the flour, butter, shortening, and salt.
  2. Pulse until the butter breaks into pea-size pieces.
  3. In a small bowl, mix together the water and egg yolk.
  4. With the machine running, add this mixture to the bowl of the food processor.
  5. Once the dough becomes one big ball, transfer the mixture to a floured work surface and press together into a disc.
  6. Add flour as needed and roll the dough to fit a 9 or 10-inch pie plate.

  7. After placing the dough into the pie plate, trim the edges with a knife, and then crimp the edges with your fingers.

  8. After placing the dough into the pie plate, freeze for 15 minutes.

Pie Filling:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. In a small bowl, slightly beat the egg white.
  3. Brush enough of the egg white to cover the bottom of the crust and poke the crust several times with a fork.
  4. In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, syrup, sugar, melted butter, vanilla, and Bourbon.
  5. Spread the chocolate chips in the bottom of the prepared crust and top with the pecans.
  6. Slowly pour the filling over the nuts.
