Chocolate Bourbon Pecan Pie 

9″ pie shell

1 cup white sugar

1 cup light corn syrup

1/2 cup butter

4 eggs, beaten

1/4 cup bourbon (the fun part)

1 tsp vanilla extract

1/4 tsp salt

6 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips

1 cup chopped pecans

 

Caramel Sauce

1 packed cup brown sugar

1/2 cup half-and-half

4 Tbl butter

Pinch of salt

1 Tbl vanilla extract

 

Preheat oven to 325°F.  In a small saucepan, combine sugar, corn syrup, and butter.  Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until butter melts and sugar dissolves.  Cool slightly.  In a large bowl, mix eggs, bourbon, vanilla, and salt.  Slowly whisk in the sugar mixture.  Stir in chocolate chips and pecans, then pour into pie shell.  Bake for 50 to 55 minutes, until set and golden.

Sauce:  mix the brown sugar, half-and-half, butter and salt in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Cook while whisking gently for 5 to 7 minutes, until it gets thicker. Add the vanilla and cook another minute to thicken further. Turn off the heat, cool slightly and drizzle over the cooked pie.  Pour the remaining sauce into a jar and refrigerate.

Now it’s time to eat, drink and be merry!

Our Customers Love Us

Texas Custom Patios was a pleasure to work with from first call to final detail on our patio cover and flooring. Everyone we worked with — office personnel on scheduling, crews on fast and quality work, and Steven helping with design ideas and scheduling and issue resolution — were all what contracting should be. We had been looking at our odd roofline, chimney location and numerous angles for over 10 years and received numerous quotes and estimates that just didn’t work or the contractors flatly said they couldn’t do what we were looking for . . . until Steven and TCP arrived and did exactly what we wanted (and more) on time, on budget, no hassle. We love our new space and receive many compliments on the look and functionality of the space and design. We would love to have TCP and Steven do another project for us and we recommend them to anyone.
