Ingredients

  • 1 recipe Pastry for Single-Crust Pie (see recipe below)
  • 3 lightly beaten eggs
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup light-colored corn syrup
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons bourbon (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate pieces
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Directions

  1. Prepare Pastry for Single-Crust Pie. On a lightly floured surface, roll dough to form a 12-inch circle. Ease pastry into a 9-inch pie plate. Trim to 1/2 inch beyond edge of pie plate; fold under extra pastry. Crimp edge. Set aside.
  2. For filling, in a medium bowl, combine eggs, brown sugar, corn syrup, melted butter, bourbon (if you like), and vanilla. Stir in chocolate pieces, nuts, and salt until well combined. Pour into pastry-lined pie plate. To prevent overbrowning, cover edge of pie with foil.
  3. Bake in a 375 degree F oven for 20 minutes. Remove foil. Bake for 20 to 30 minutes more or until the crust is golden and a knife inserted near the center of the filling comes out clean. Let cool for at least 2 hours before cutting. Makes 8 servings.
