Servings 8 slices


  • 1/2 pkg. 14 oz. refrigerated pie crust. You can also use any preferred homemade pie crust recipe for a 9" pie pan. I love this pie crust recipe - https://sincerelymariedesigns.com/the-best-apple-streusel-pie/
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped & toasted pecans
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup dark corn syrup Honey can be used instead.
  • 1/2 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup bourbon I use Four Roses. It's an affordable option, great for baking.
  • 4 Lg. eggs
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 2 tsp. white cornmeal
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp. salt


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Fit piecrust into 9" pie plate.

  2. Sprinkle toasted and cooled pecans and chocolate chips evenly over the piecrust.

  3. Stir together the corn syrup or honey, granulated sugar, brown sugar, and bourbon in a large sauce pan over medium heat. Bring to a boil and stir consistently for 3 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.

  4. Whisk together the eggs and next four ingredients. Gradually whisk 1/4th of the hot syrup mixture into the egg mixture. (This will prevent the eggs from scrambling from the heat of the syrup.) Continually whisking and slowly pouring in syrup mixture until all combined.

  5. Pour syrup and egg mixture over pecans and chocolate and place pie in the oven. Bake for 55 minutes uncovered or until set. Once baked, cool on a cooling rack. Serve with a scoop of ice cream and enjoy!
