2 Tbsp
kentucky bourbon
1 c
pecans, chopped (or walnuts)
1 1/4 c
bittersweet chocolate chips
1 tsp
vanilla extract
1 pinch
ready-made pie crust

Directions Step-By-Step

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and press pie crust into a pie pan.
Combine flour and sugar in a mixing bowl. Add the eggs and melted butter; mix to combine. Stir in the bourbon, pecans (or walnuts), chocolate chips, vanilla and salt. Pour the mixture into the unbaked pie crust. Bake for 45 minutes to an hour (depending on pie size). Let cool before slicing.
This recipe makes 1 small pie. If you would like to make a larger pie, I make 91/2 inch deep dish pies, then double up on the ingrediants and bake for the full hour!
