Thanksgiving Treats Recipe: Chocolate Bourbon Pecan Pie

Thanksgiving is just around the corner, y’all! Do you have your Thanksgiving Dinner menu finalized? After much internet scouring (here’s looking at you Pinterest), I am wrapping up my own, and I couldn’t help but share this decadent Chocolate Bourbon Pecan Pie recipe with all of you. Because nothing says Thanksgiving in the South like bourbon and pie. Can I get an amen?

This pie looks (and better yet tastes) impressive, but is actually quite simple to make. My favorite part about this recipe is that we’re going to use a store-bought nine-inch, unbaked pie shell. That’s right ladies, why go to the trouble of making our own, when we can pick up a perfectly fine, ready-made crust from the grocery store? This is Thanksgiving — we’re going to be cooking all day. So why not save some time and energy where we can? Am I right?  Let’s get started.

Chocolate Bourbon Pecan Pie

Ingredients:

  • 1 nine-inch, unbaked pie shell
  • 2 cups pecan halves, divided
  • 3 large eggs
  • 3 tbsp butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup corn syrup
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 tbsp bourbon
  • 3 oz semi-sweet chocolate, chopped

Instructions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Line your store-bought shell with a cup of pecan halves.
  3. In a medium sized bowl, whisk together the eggs and melted butter.
  4. Next, add the corn syrup, sugar, bourbon, and chocolate to the bowl.
  5. Stir until all ingredients are combined, and then pour the mixture into the pie shell (over the pecans).
  6. Add the rest of the pecans to the top of the pie mixture, and place the pie on a heavy-duty baking sheet.
  7. Bake for 10 minutes; then reduce the heat to 350 degrees, allowing the pie to bake for an additional 25 minutes (or until set).
  8. Serve warm with ice cream!
