Chocolate-Bourbon Pecan Pie

A touch of bourbon balances the deep sweetness that this pie gets from brown sugar and maple syrup.

Active Time:

30 min.

Total Time:

4 hrs.


  • 1¼ cups all-purpose flour 
  • ¼ tsp. salt 
  • ¾ cup cold butter, cubed

  • ⅔ cup maple syrup
  • 1 cup lightly packed light brown sugar 
  • ¼ cup bourbon whiskey 
  • 3 eggs

  1. In food processor, pulse flour and salt to combine. Add ½ cup butter; pulse just until mixture resembles coarse cornmeal and butter is pea-sized. Pulse in 1 Tbs. water. Pulse in additional water 1 tsp. at a time until dough just comes together; shape into disk. Wrap in plastic wrap; chill 30 min.
