What a perfect dessert to serve at the end of our Kentucky Derby watching party! Sinfully rich though, so serve very small slices!
1 (9 inch pie shell)
1 cup white granulated sugar
½ cup white corn syrup
½ cup dark corn syrup
½ cup butter
4 eggs, beaten
1/3 cup Kentucky bourbon
1 t. vanilla
¼ t. salt
¾ cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chip morsels
1 cup chopped pecans
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
Over low heat, in a medium saucepan, combine sugar, corn syrups and butter. Stirring constantly, heat until butter is melted and sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat and let the mixture cool for about 5 minutes.
In a large mixing bowl, stir together beaten eggs, bourbon, vanilla and salt. Very slowly pour the cooled sugar syrup mixture into the egg mixture.
Carefully stir in the chocolate chips and pecan pieces. Pour mixture into pie shell. Place pie shell onto a baking sheet and place in oven.
Bake for 55-60 minutes until the filling is set and golden. If the pie crusts begins to brown too much, cover with strips of aluminum foil.
Let the pie cool before slicing & serving.
I served mine with freshly whipped cream with a little extra bourbon drizzled over the cream.
