David’s Birthday Pie

When I asked David what he wanted me to make for his birthday he asked for the Chocolate Bourbon Pecan pie that I make.

I figured I’d throw the recipe on here because it’s kind of awesome {just ask my sister… she may have eaten the first one by herself}

The original recipe is here, but I’ve adapted it to what you see below.

1 cup white sugar
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1/2 cup dark corn syrup
1/2 cup butter
4 eggs, beaten
2 tbsp bourbon
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup or so of milk chocolate chips
1 1/2 cups chopped pecans

Aside from the change in ingredients, I follow the recipe, except I layer the chocolate chips into the bottom of the pie pan before I add the filling instead of mixing them into the filling.

I’m no food photographer and we all know my house has zero natural light, but here’s what it looked like.

Really, you should make this.
