Boozy Chocolate Chip Pie
Here is the pie that I have been alluding to. This is my husband's favorite pie. I am not really big on sweets, so he is the deciding factor her on The Barbee Housewife. He has deemed this the best of pretty much, everything. He is obsessed with pecan pies, he is obsessed with chocolate chip pies, so this really should be no surprise to me.
I am glad I finally had a reason to share this with you guys, this week the swap, put on by A Taste of Home Cooking, category was Holiday Baking. I got the blog Cookies on Friday, which was so appropriate, considering that is where I first discovered this wonderful pie. This pie is mandatory in our household on Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter, 4th of July, and any other holiday.
Make this pie, everyone will love you, the result will be a gooey chocolate pie that is unbelievably sweet and perfect in every way.

1 Pie Crust, homemade or store-bought
1 1/2 cup of Pecans, toasted and chopped
1 cup of Chocolate Chips, semi-sweet
1 cup of Dark Corn Syrup
1/2 cup of Sugar
1/2 cup of Dark Brown Sugar
1/4 cup of Honey Whiskey
1/4 cup of Butter, melted
2 teaspoons of Cornstarch
2 teaspoons of Vanilla
1/2 teaspoon of Salt
First, pre-heat the oven to 325 degrees.
Next, roll out your pie crust and place into the pan.
Now, in a small bowl, combine the pecans and chocolate chips. Spread into the pie pan over the pie crust.
Next, in a large saucepan combine the corn syrup, sugar, brown sugar, and whiskey. Bring to a boil over medium heat. When it starts to boil, stir for 2 minutes constantly and remove from heat.
In a separate large bowl, whisk together the eggs, butter, cornstarch, vanilla, and salt.
Now, pour the corn syrup mixture into the egg mixture, slowly, constantly stirring until it has been fully combined. Run through a seize if needed/desired. Pour the mixture into the pie pan over the pecans and chocolate chips.
Bake for 50-60 minutes or until the middle of the pie is set.
Serve with ice cream or whipped cream.
