Pecan Pie with Jack Daniels

For this recipe you will need:

  • 3 Jumbo eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 3/4 cup corn syrup
  • 1/4 cup molasses
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup Jack Daniels whiskey
  • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup whole pecans
  • 1 (10-inch) unbaked pie pastry

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

In a mixing bowl, beat eggs, sugar, butter, molasses, corn syrup, vanilla extract and Jack Daniels until well combined. Strain. Sprinkle chocolate chips over bottom of unbaked pie shell, cover with pecans, and pour filling overall. Bake at 375 degrees F for 35 to 40 minutes or until a knife inserted halfway between the center and the edge comes out clean. Let set at least 30 minutes before serving.
