Chocolate Bourbon Pecan Pie
- 1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
- 2 tsp sugar
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1 stick cold unsalted butter cut into thin slices
- 1/4 cup ice water
- 2 cups whole pecans
- 3 large eggs
- 3/4 cup brown sugar
- 2/3 cup light corn syrup can replace for honey, but will alter flavor slightly
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 2 Tbsp melted unsalted butter
- 3 Tbsp bourbon this pie made with Bowman Brothers
- 3/4 cup mini semisweet dark chocolate chips
Sift flour into bowl, whisk in sugar and salt. Add butter and pulse all ingredients in food processor. (or use your hands like me!)
Place mixture in bowl and stir in the ice water. Knead the dough 2 or 3 times on a lightly floured surface and pat into a ball. Wrap in plastic and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
Roll out dough onto floured surface to a 12" circle. Place dough into pie pan. Gently pressing into corners and trimming off any excess. Refrigerate until firm.
Toast pecans at 375 F for 8 minutes.
Thoroughly mix all remaining ingredients in a bowl.
Pour filling into pie crust.
Place pecans on top of filling in a design, or chop and sprinkle.
Bake at 375 F for 55 minutes or until crust pulls away from sides of pie dish.
Cool for 15 min.
Serve warm with a scoop of ice cream!!!
