Ingredients

  • 1 unbaked [9] inch deep dish pie shell frozen or homemade
  • 1 cup roughly chopped pecans or walnuts toasted
  • 1 ¼ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • ½ cup all purpose flour
  • ½ cup salted butter melted cooled to room temperature
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 2 Tbsp Kentucky bourbon
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla
  • 3 large eggs lightly beaten

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F. Spread pecans in a single layer on a baking sheet. Toast for 6-8 minutes. Set aside to cool slightly.
  • In a mixing bowl, toss together pecans, chocolate chips and flour.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together cooled butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar, salt, bourbon, vanilla and eggs until fully blended. Add to pecans and chocolate chips. Mix well.
  • Pour evenly into pie crust. Bake for 30 minutes.
  • After 30 minutes, lay a piece of foil on top. Lower the oven temperature to 325°F. Continue to bake the pie for another 20-30 minutes or until the center of the pie is set when gently shaken. Cool on a cooling rack for 4 hours.
  • Serve with vanilla ice cream or a dollop of fresh whipped cream.
  • Store leftovers tightly covered at room temperature.

Notes

  • Make your own pie crust using my Flaky Pie Crust recipe. 
  • If you need to prepare this pie ahead of time, it re-heats in the microwave beautifully.
