The most popular pie that I make is a pecan pie. I seem to make it for most family get togethers. Since I make it often, I like to switch up the recipes. Here is a recent creation.

3 ounces Chocolate Chips

1 9-inch Pie Crust

3 large Eggs

1 cup packed Dark Brown Sugar

1 cup Light Corn Syrup

1 teaspoon Vanilla

1/8 teaspoon Salt

1 cup Pecans, coarsely chopped

1 tablespoon Bourbon

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and prebake pie shell for 7 minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkle chocolate chips in the shell. In a medium bowl, beat eggs until frothy. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix well. Pour filling into the shell and bake for 40-45 minutes.




I lived in New Orleans, since birth, until Hurricane Katrina. I now live in Arkansas with my wife and our spoiled-rotten dog. I have been cooking since I was 8. My first cookbook, You can't keep New Orleans out of the cook, is now available at publishamerica.net and most online bookstores. It is also available on Kindle and Nook.
