I have an odd dislike and love for pie. I have never liked Apple pie (but I can eat it if I want something sweet and there’s nothing else around) and I really really dislike other types of fruit pies. I think it is the odd bitterness combined with the dry crust, not sure. However, I absolutely love pumpkin pie and pecan pie. I recently made a pumpkin pie from a can and it was pretty successful so I decided to try my hand at a more difficult pie and make ‘Tipsy Chocolate Pecan Pie.’ It is normal pecan pie but you put chocolate chips on the bottom of the pecans and you add whiskey to pecan mixture. Not many people know this about me but I absolutely love Whiskey and to be able to put it in a pie very so great!
I didn’t make the crust because I wasn’t feeling that ambitious so I just bought a frozen crust. All I had to do was sprinkle the chocolate chips in the bottom of the pie crust, mix together the ingredients [corn syrup, pecans, sugar, salt and whiskey] and then bake it for a little less than an hour. It was soo good! I am not sure why it bubbled over so bad (see picture) but I am glad I put it on a baking sheet just in case! It was really good with whipped cream and I could actually taste the whiskey in the gooey pecan middle! It was the perfect pie for the beginning of fall!
