semisweet chocolate chips
I made this pie (actually made two of them) for a Christmas party, entertained some friends with the leftovers the next day, and took the rest to the office, and it was a big hit with everyone!! Reading the other reviews , I made the following suggested modifications: used deep dish pie crust, the amount of filling turned out just right that way; cut down bourbon to 2 tbs and sugar to 3/4 cup; and laid down a single layer of chocolate chips at the bottom of the crust (did not measure, it was maybe 2 oz of chips) instead of mixing them in the filling. This was the first pecan pie I ever made, and I make desserts rarely, but this was easy to make and turned out wonderfully. If you want a nice pecan pie with a twist (that is not overpowering), try this one.
This pecan pie is overwhelmed by the bourbon and chocolate and has more of a custard consistency. Recipe almost makes enough filling for 2 pies if using a frozen 9" pie shell.
this is my recipe that I have been making for at least 15 years for Thanksgiving & Christmas...I have changed it slightly to make it the way we really love. 3/4c sugar instead of of 1c, 2 tbsp bourbon instead of 1/4c and 1/2c choc chips instead of 6 oz. Make it in a DEEP pie dish, as this makes a lot of filling!! Thanksgiving isn't Thanksgiving for me without this pie.
I am asked to make this for every holiday!
I put the chocolate chips in the pie shell prior to adding the mixture so that they don't melt. Prior to this, they seemed to make one big chocolate glob - adding them first took care of this problem. I also use a little less bourbon so it doesn't overpower the other flavors.
This is a DECADENT pie! Like many other reviewers, I found it too chocolatey the first time I made it. To remedy it the second time:
1)I used less chocolate chips
2) melted them beforehand
3) poured the melted chips into a deep dish pie shell, and put the pie shell back in the freezer for an hour before I made the actual pie.
It came out great with just a little layer of chocolate at the bottom! Also like many reviewers I used Kahlua instead of Bourbon. DELISH! Thanks for sharing this recipe!
I would push my grandma down the stairs to get to the last piece of this pie. DEELISH!
The pie was delicious. The only problem I ran into was that the recipie makes a lot of filling -- I used a frozen, ready-made 9" pie crust and it was enough for 2 pies!
Incredible! I wanted something different this year for Thanksgiving and this was it!
I used Kahlua instead of Bourbon, and it was just incredible. I think next time I will lower the amount of chocolate chips, as they are a little overpowering, but otherwise the perfect pie!
