Per usual, everything is better with bourbon. Also, I'd like to thank Trader Joe's for helping me consistently look like a real baker via frozen pie crusts. Keep up the good work.
WHAT YOU NEED:
1 uncooked pie crust
1 cup sugar
1 cup plus 2 tablespoons dark corn syrup
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons bourbon
1/3 cup unsalted butter, melted
1 heaping cup chopped pecans
1/2 cup chocolate chips
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Make your pie crust (or thaw it per the directions on the box) and roll out into a 9-inch pie pan. Place in fridge or freezer while preparing other ingredients.
- In a medium bowl, whisk together sugar, corn syrup, salt, eggs, vanilla, bourbon and melted butter.
- Sprinkle pecans and chocolate chips in the bottom of prepared pie shell. Give the filling another whisk, then pour it overtop the pecans and chips.
- Place pie pan on a baking sheet and put in the oven. Bake for about 45-55 minutes, or until the filling is mostly set and slightly puffed, with just a bit of jiggle. Cool completely before slicing. I prefer storing in the fridge, and eating it cold, but you do you.
