Jack Daniel’s Chocolate Pecan Pie


This is exactly as good as it sounds.

9-inch frozen pie crust in foil baking tin, thawed per package directions
3 eggs
2 egg yolks
2/3 cup sugar
3/4 cup dark corn syrup
5 tablespoons butter, melted
1/4 cup Jack Daniel’s
2/3 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1 1/4 cups pecan halves

1) Preheat oven to 350.
2) In a bowl, whisk together eggs, egg yolks, and sugar until well combined. Whisk in the corn syrup, melted butter, and Jack Daniel’s until well combined.
3) Sprinkle 1/3 cup chocolate chips over the bottom of the pie crust. Pour pie filling over top. Sprinkle 1/2 cup pecans over filling. Then sprinkle the remaining chocolate pieces, and top with remaining 3/4 cup pecans.
4) Bake the pie for 50-55 minutes. When done, turn off oven, but leave the pie in with the door closed for an extra 15 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool for at least 2 hours.
