This pie …
Oh my …
If you like pecan pie, and you like chocolate, for the love of all that is good, try this pie. Soon!
Pie making is easy. All you do is take some pretty basic ingredients: eggs, light corn syrup, melted butter, light brown sugar, bourbon (just a little bit), all-purpose flour, vanilla extract, pecans and chocolate chips.
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.
Bake it up. And shazam! You’ve got a pretty darn tasty Chocolate Bourbon Pecan Pie, if I do say so myself.
Going now to eat more pie.
And then hit the treadmill.
A few pie making notes:
- 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!

- 2 tablespoons bourbon
- 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 1 tablespoon vanilla
- 1 1/4 cup pecan, chopped

- Bake pie on the bottom rack at 425-degrees F for 15 minutes.
- After 15 minutes reduce heat to 350-degrees F and bake for another 40-45 minutes. Be watchful for over-browning. Cover crust with aluminum foil if needed to avoid burning.

Look great! Nice to see your pie on PW’s website, my pie is there too 🙂
wow this looks delicious!
Made TWO of these pies tonight for Thanksgiving celebrations tomorrow…..I want to dig in soooo bad. They look exactly like your pictures, thanks for such a wonderful idea!
just made this for my family. WOW. AMAZING. definitely keeping this in the regular pie rotation.
Why not prebake the pie?
The directions are a bit unclear… after you bake it for 15 minutes at 425, do you take it out and let it rest for 15 minutes? Or just go straight to the 45-minute bake at 350?
I didn’t let mine rest and the crust burned. 🙁 Haven’t tasted it yet.
Leave the pie in the oven on the bottom rack, and reduce oven temp to 350°F and cook for another 45 minutes. If the crust is getting a little dark, you can always take aluminum foil and cover the edge of the crust.
Hope that helps!
I tried covering the crust after the initial 15 minutes…it burned anyway! What did I do wrong?
Hmmmm … I think it would depend on oven temperature and rack position in oven. If the rack position was correct, I’d check your oven temperature with a thermometer to make sure your oven is showing correct temperature. Other than that, I’m not sure.
I made this pie for Thanksgiving and it was a huge hit! Thanks for a wonderful recipe. My family is also very grateful!
Thanks Amy… I was tending to the baby and left it to my husband. He did it correctly but did not check the crust at all and that’s why it burned. Still delicious with homemade whipped cream!
This was fabulous pie and a huge success at Thanksgiving!
I also made this for Thanksgivign and it was delicious. It needed a bit longer in the oven than you stated but that was probably just due to differences in oven temperatures. Thanks for the recipe!
This was phenomenal. I think my boyfriend cried a little when he ate it. Thanks for the amazing recipe/photos!
This pie looks so amazing!
Beautiful pie! I feature it on my Top Five Best Classic Pies: Reinvented
WOW! i love pecans and I love chocolate! the simplicity in the preparation of this pie is tempting…will make this sometime 🙂
thanks for sharing 🙂
This looks beyond good! Bourbon and chocolate and sugar…yes, please!
I’m kind of new to blogs and stuff so I don’t know if I posted this right. But I made this pie for my family for Thanksgiving and it was awesome, almost deadly! My crust also started to brown about 20 minutes in but I read the comment below and wrapped it in foil and it turned out perfect! I actually love the taste of slightly burnt pastry anyways…I already love pecan pie but when I saw this post I was thinking “chocolate and alcohol? Could that possibly make it anything but better?”.
We had a pretty awesome accident with this recipe tonight. Someone mis-read the recipe to put in 2 _cups_ of flour, instead of 2 _tablespoons_.
It ended up as a really delicious cake!
I made this tonight! But realized I forgot the flour… I also exchanged the bourbon for more vanilla extract. I am hoping this will still taste yummy! It still looks great! Does anyone know if it will be good?
I never leave comments, and have made Jack Daniels pie for years. This is the best recipe that I have ever came across, I used yours b/c I didn’t want to look for mine and it was perfect!!! Thanksfor sharing
Just wondering… Is the bourbon flavor obvious or strong? I want to make it for thanksgiving, but I’m concerned about the bourbon as my father-in-law is “not so thrilled” about alcohol. However, I’d love to try it with the bourbon….
Personally I didn’t find the bourbon flavor strong at all.
