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 did an amazing job on our outdoor living space! Everything from the initial meeting to the finished product has been wonderful! Steven listened to our ideas, asked questions, and then came back to us with a design that was even better than we dreamed! The crews that came to work on our project were incredible. The final result is an outdoor living space that looks as if it has always been a part of our home… not something that was added on. We would definitely recommend them to anyone looking to add outdoor living space to their home!
