Kentucky Bourbon Pecan Raisin Chocolate Pie
1 Pie Shell 1/4 cup butter 1 cup firmly packed brown sugar 3 eggs 1/2 cup cane syrup 1 cup halved pecans 1/4 cup bourbon 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/3 cup raisins (I use 1/2 cup) 1 cup chocolate chips (I like to use the small ones)
Preheat oven to 450 degrees and bake the pie shell partially, (about 5-7 mins). Allow to cool. Reduce oven heat to 375 degrees. Cream butter and brown sugar. Beat in eggs one at a time. Stir in remaining ingredients except chocolate chips. Place the chips in a single layer on the partially baked pie crust and gently pour the filling over the top. Bake the pie about 45 mins or until a knife inserted in the filling comes out clean. Serve warm or cold. My personal suggestion is that you use a large pie plate like the pyrex pie plates. This recipes has a tendency to swell while it's baking and sharing it's contents with the oven floor.
For the Bourbon over:Another trick I did was to soak the raisins in a bit of the bourbon overnight before I put them in the recipe. When you bit into the pie, you got a little burst of raisin, bourbon juice.
