If you ever go to Kentucky - guess what you have to try?! A chocolate pecan pie - they are marvelous! I rarely go to Kentucky and when I learned I had to for the National AOBA show I wasn't thrilled, of course I thought heck out of the entire US why was Kentucky picked?! Oh well it was fun.

We of course chowed and ate out a lot which didn't help in the maintaining a nice physique but oh well neither will this pie. It's delicious and very similar to a pecan pie which we all know southern eastern US is famous for.

This pie is REALLY good - and I recommend everyone to try it, it's not hard even for us novice cooks. So let me stop raving and give you the scoop on how to make it!

  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate bits (recommend Hershey)
  • lightly beated 2 medium eggs
  • 1/4 cup corn starch
  • optional but recommended: 4 tablespoons bourbon

  • 1 pie pan

  • What to do next.

    • Mix sugar, butter eggs and bourbon and then once those are missed lightly mix in the corn starch.
    • Stir in the pecans and chocolate and then put into the pie pan.

    • Bake at 350 F degrees for 45 minutes.
