Since it's the time of year when pecan pies tend to pop up, I figured I'd share my recipe with y'all:
- 1.5 cup coarsely chopped pecan pieces
- 3/4 cup milk chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup cane syrup
- 1/4 cup light corn syrup
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 3 large eggs, beaten
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 1/4 cup Bourbon
- pinch of salt
- 1 pie crust
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Spread the half of the pecan pieces evenly on the bottom of the pie shell. Spread the chocolate chips on top of the pecans. Evenly spread the remaining pecans.
In a mixing bowl, whisk the remaining ingredients together. Pour the filling over the pecans (you may have some excess filling depending on the depth of your pie pan). Bake until the filling sets, 45 to 55 minutes. Remove from the oven and cool for 30 minutes before slicing.
