Before coming on board at Red Stick Spice, Lori was a customer and good friend of the store. We couldn't be happier to have her on our team! Lori brings a wealth of knowledge about cooking--she's a trained chef and an accomplished home cook. Look no further than her blog Little White Apron for proof. We love Lori's no-nonsense approach to cooking and everything else in life. And we really love this recipe for pecan pie...an already decadent dessert meets booze and chocolate. Yum!
3 extra large eggs
1 cup sugar
2 Tbl butter, melted
1 cup dark corn syrup
1/4 cup Jack Daniels
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup pecan halves
1 10" frozen or homemade pie crust
Preheat oven to 375˚. Combine eggs, sugar, butter, corn syrup, vanilla and Jack Daniels in a bowl. Strain mixture and combine with pecans. Place chocolate chips in frozen pie crust. Pour pecan mixture over chocolate chips. Place pie on a lined baking sheet and bake in the oven for 35-40 minutes. Set aside for at least 30 minutes before cutting. Serve with vanilla ice cream or vanilla whipped cream.
