Chocolate Bourbon Walnut Pie


Recipe for single 9-inch pie crust

½ cup unsalted butter, melted and cooled

¾ cup light brown sugar

¼ cup granulated sugar

¾ cup light corn syrup

4 eggs

¼ cup bourbon

1½ teaspoons vanilla extract

1¼ cups walnuts, given a very coarse chop

¾ cup semisweet chocolate chips


1. Prepare the pie crust as directed in your recipe; blind bake according to the recipe's instructions; set aside.

2. Adjust the oven temperature to 350 degrees F.

3. In the bowl of an electric mixer on medium-high speed with a whisk attachment (or in a large bowl with a whisk and a lot of elbow grease), whip together the butter, sugars, corn syrup, eggs, bourbon and vanilla extract until frothy. Fold in the walnuts and chocolate chips with a rubber spatula.

4. Pour into the prepared pie crust (you may have more filling than will fit into your pie pan - just fill it up as far as you can). Bake for 50 to 60 minutes or until set. Cool completely at room temperature (at least 4 hours) before slicing into the pie. Serve with ice cream or whipped cream.
