Find an empty pie shell you may have lying around, or make your own pie crust. My good friend Robyn from AddaPinch, has an excellent homemade pie crust recipe. During the holidays I also like to stock up on pre-made pie dough, that you unroll, fill and bake. It’s so easy to use and works great when running late on your baking schedule.

Mix up all the ingredients and fill that pie shell with all the good stuff.

This Chocolate Bourbon Pecan Pie is a southern favorite that takes an even tastier twist when chocolate and bourbon are added.

Bake it up. And shazam! You’ve got a pretty darn tasty Chocolate Bourbon Pecan Pie, if I do say so myself.

  • A big shout out to Jennifer Perillo from In Jennie’s Kitchen for tips on baking instructions. Her tip for baking at a high temp first then lowering the tempeartue always works perfectly when baking pies. 
  • Have fun crimping and decorating your pie. There is no right or wrong way. Here’s an excellent video I found for crimping pie crust 3 different ways. Have fun with it!
