Ingredients

  • 1 cup (109 grams) pecan halves
  • 1 cup (170 grams) semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 9- inch unbaked pie shell
  • 4 large eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 cup (100 grams) granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup (100 grams) light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup corn syrup
  • 2 tablespoons bourbon (optional)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F.
  2. Spread the pecans and chocolate chips evenly on the bottom of the pie shell.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs, granulated sugar, brown sugar, corn syrup, bourbon, vanilla, cinnamon, and salt. Pour over the pecans and chocolate chips.
