This is by far Camila's favorite pie in the whole world.

This Chocolate Bourbon Pecan Pie has become a must-make Thanksgiving tradition in Camila’s house. It’s not only her favorite but her entire family’s favorite, even down to her sister-in-law!

Thanks to a good family friend, Gerry Chaney, who not only made this one Thanksgiving, but also shared the recipe with Camila. Now, no Thanksgiving can be complete without this delicious dessert! In true Women of Today style, Camila modified this recipe to make it better-for-you, and eliminated any corn syrup.

Check out Camila in the video below to get a step-by-step guide on how to make it.

We hope you enjoy this recipe and share it with your family and friends.

Better-For-You Chocolate Bourbon Pecan Pie

Ingredients

  • 1 9 ½ inch pie shell
  • 3/4 cup organic coconut palm sugar
  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 4 eggs, beaten
  • 1/4 cup Bourbon
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 4 oz semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup chopped pecans

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  • On low heat, combine the butter and coconut palm sugar in a saucepan. Slowly stir until the sugar dissolves. The constancy will be thick syrup and smooth.
  • In a large bowl, whisk the eggs, bourbon, salt, and vanilla. Slowly add the cooled syrup mixture and whisk together.
  • Add the pecans and chocolate chips to the bowl and stir it a little. Don’t mix it too much because you’ll melt the chocolate.
  • Pour mixture into the pie crust and bake until the center of the pie is set, about 35-45 minutes. The pie will puff up while cooking. The edges should be a deep golden brown. The cooking time can vary depending on if you’re using a ready-made pie shell or making your own pie crust and using a glass pie plates cook at different rates. Keep an eye on the edges of the crust and when it is a deep golden brown and the pie is set, meaning it is firm, the pie is finished cooking.
  • If not serving the same day, cover and refrigerate. Remove from refrigerator 2 hours before serving to bring pie to room temperature.
