Wild Turkey Bourbon Chocolate Pecan Pie

Serves 6

Pastry

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup very cold unsalted butter, cut into pieces
  • 2 extra-large egg yolks, lightly beaten
  • 1/4 cup ice water

Combine the flour, salt and sugar in a mixing bowl. Cut the butter into the flour mixture, using a pastry blender, until the mixture resembles coarse meal. With your hands, gradually add the egg yolks and ice water until a ball of dough is formed (do not overwork the dough). Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and chill for 30 minutes. When the dough is chilled, roll it on a lightly floured surface to a thickness of about 1/8 inch. Make a circle 12 inches in diameter. Place the dough in a 10-inch pie pan and preheat the oven to 375 F.

Filling

Ingredients

  • 3 extra-large eggs
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 cup dark corn syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup Wild Turkey 101
  • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup pecan halves

In a mixing bowl beat the eggs, sugar, melted butter, corn syrup, vanilla, and bourbon. Strain this mixture into another bowl, using fine mesh, Sprinkle the chocolate chips on the bottom of the unbaked pie crust, and cover with the pecans. Pour the filling on the top of the chocolate and pecans. Bake for 35-40 minutes. The pie is done when a knife inserted 2 inches from the side comes out clean. Cool the pie for at least 30 minutes before serving.
