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!

Ryan, our project manager, was both attentive and patient with every request, question, and concern that we raised at any point throughout the duration of the project. He was always a phone call or text away, responding every time in an impressively timely manner. He listened to and accommodated our requests, but he also offered suggestions to broaden our imaginations as to what we could create with simple adjustments to our design.
