Pie Recipe! Chocolate Pecan

It's been brought to my attention that the pie recipes sometimes escape notice. Well...I've only put up two and they're both Chocolate Pecan. I have my reasons...

So. I'm breaking this particular recipe out because it deserves special notice. Make this pie! It's a little slice o'heaven!

Chocolate Pecan Pie

  • 9" pie crust
  • 1 Cup pecans (Trader Joe's Cinnamon glazed pecans are an excellent choice)
  • 1/4 Cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 Cup (packed) golden brown sugar
  • 3/4 Cup pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 Cup butter, melted
  • 3 large eggs
  • 3 - 4 Tablespoons of bourbon
  • 1 1/2 - 2 Teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/4 Teaspoon salt
Preheat oven 325 degrees. Sprinkle 1/2 cup pecans and 1/4 cup chocolate chips over bottom of crust. Whisk brown sugar and next six ingredients in medium bowl. Pour into pie crust. Sprinkle remaining pecans over filling. Bake until filling is set in center about 40 minutes. Cover the edges of pie crust with aluminum foil or a pie shieild about halfway through baking to prevent edges from getting too brown.
