Classic pecan pie with a dark chocolate twist.
Ingredients
  • 1 Prepared sheet of pie dough
  • 2 tbsp of melted salted butter cooled
  • 2 cups of pecans (toasted)
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 1 cup of light corn syrup
  • ½ cup of dark chocolate chips
  • 2 tbsp of pure vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp of bourbon (optional)
  • 1 cup of heavy whipping cream
  • ½ cup of powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp of bourbon
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Mix together the butter, eggs, corn syrup, vanilla and sugar.
  3. Add bourbon if desired.
  4. Mix in the pecans and chocolate.
  5. Place pie dough into a pie dish and pour the filling over the top.
  6. Tap the dish on the counter to help the pecans rise to the top.
  7. Bake for 45-50 minutes or until the middle sets.
  8. I covered the pie with foil before baking and removed 15 minutes before finishing so the crust would not burn.
  9. Let the pie cool before serving.
  10. For the whip cream:
  11. In a large clean dry bowl add the cold heavy cream, sugar and bourbon (vanilla if you don't want bourbon).
  12. Mix with a hand mixer on high until soft peaks form.
