Chocolate-bourbon pecan pie

Prep 40 min
Total 3 hours 10 min
Serves 8



2 cups
all-purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp
granulated sugar
3/4 tsp
3/4 cup
unsalted butter
3 to 4 tbsp
ice-cold water
egg, beaten


1 cup
golden corn syrup
1/2 cup
granulated sugar
1/4 cup
melted unsalted butter
1 tbsp
1 tsp
1/8 tsp
1 cup
1/3 cup
semi-sweet mini chocolate chips


  • WHIRL flour with 1 1/2 tsp sugar and 3/4 tsp salt in a food processor until combined. Add butter. Pulse until finely crumbled. With machine running, add water through the spout, 1 tbsp at a time, and continue whirling until dough comes together, 30 sec. Roll one third of pastry and form into a square. Form remaining pastry into a disc. Wrap each with plastic and refrigerate for 30 min.
  • POSITION rack in bottom third of oven. Preheat to 375F.
  • REMOVE chilled pastry from refrigerator. Roll out larger pastry piece on a lightly floured surface into a 12-in.-wide circle. Gently fold pastry in half and lift into a 9-in. pie plate. Unfold and press dough over bottom and up sides of plate, leaving a 1/2-in. overhang. Carefully trim off edges. Refrigerate.
  • ROLL out smaller pastry piece on a lightly floured surface into a 12 × 6-in. rectangle. Cutting along the long side, with a ruler as a guide, cut off 12 1/4-in.-wide strips. Discard remaining dough. Working with 3 strips at a time, braid the dough on a floured surface. (You will need about 36 in. of braids to line a 9-in. pie.) Brush beaten egg over edges of pie crust. Arrange braids over edges, pressing gently to stick and trimming to fit. Brush with beaten egg.
  • WHISK 4 eggs in a medium bowl. Whisk in corn syrup, 1/2 cup sugar, 1/4 cup melted butter, bourbon, vanilla and 1/8 tsp salt until combined. Scatter pecans and chocolate chips on the bottom of the pie crust. Pour filling evenly overtop.
  • BAKE in bottom third of oven, until edge of filling has set and centre is slightly jiggly, 55 min to 1 hour. Cover with foil for the last 10 min, if browning too quickly. Transfer to a rack to cool completely, 1 hour.
