It's no secret that we here around The Good Buy offices love our bourbon. Pair it with pecan pie, which is always a guaranteed crowd-pleaser? Yes, please. Taza Chocolate's version is even more delicious, due to two not-so-secret ingredients. Less cloyingly sweet than some recipes, this pie gets deep, rich flavor from Dark Stone Ground Chocolate, and a smoky kick from bourbon. The pie travels well, so it’s ideal for all those seasonal potlucks, or as your contribution to the holiday feast. Makes one 9 inch pie.
3 eggs, beaten
3 tablespoons butter, melted
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons bourbon
1 unbaked 9 inch pie shell, homemade or store-bought
1 cup pecan halves, plus additional for top
1 Taza Dark Stone Ground Chocolate bar (try the seasonal Maple Pecan or Cacao Nib), chopped
Whipped cream and Roasted Cacao Nibs, to garnish (optional)
