Kentucky Bourbon Pecan Pie

Kentucky Bourbon Pecan Pie

Kentucky Bourbon Pecan Pie
This Kentucky Bourbon Pecan Pie is a traditional dessert for Kentucky Derby day which is today! This pie is made with walnuts or pecans. The pie is rich, decadent, and full of chocolate chips, nuts, and bourbon. It tastes like a large chocolate chip cookie mixed with pecan pie. I wanted to call this recipe Kentucky Derby Pie, but the name Derby-Pie is a registered trademark of Kern's Kitchen, which registered the name in 1968.

Heat oven to 350 degrees.

Using a small sauce pan on low heat melt the butter. Set aside to cool.

Beat eggs in a small bowl; set aside.

In a large bowl whisk together sugar, flour, and salt.

Add in the melted butter and stir with spatula until incorporated.

Add beaten eggs, bourbon, and vanilla extract and stir with spatula until incorporated.

With a spatula gently fold in chopped pecans and chocolate morsels.

Pour mixture into the frozen deep dish pie crust.

Place pie in the center of a rimmed baking sheet.

Bake for 50 to 60 minutes until pie is set and toothpick inserted comes out clean, and the crust is slightly browned. My pie baked in 1 hour.

Check pie after 20 minutes and if crust has browned, cover it with a pie shield or with strips of aluminum foil so it does not burn.

When the pie is done remove it from the oven and place on wire rack to cool completely, and serve when ready.
