Honey-Pecan Topping

  • cup packed brown sugar

  • 3 tablespoon butter

  • 3 tablespoon honey

  • 1 cup pecan halves

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. For filling, in a large bowl combine eggs, corn syrup, granulated sugar, brown sugar, unsweetened chocolate product, melted butter, bourbon, vanilla, and salt. Mix well. Stir in chopped pecans and chocolate pieces.

  2. Pour filling into pastry shell. Bake for 40 minutes; remove from oven. Carefully spoon Honey-Pecan Topping evenly over pie. Return to oven and bake about 10 minutes more or until topping is bubbly.

Honey-Pecan Topping

  1. In a small saucepan combine brown sugar, butter, and honey. Bring to boiling, stirring constantly; reduce heat. Boil gently, uncovered, for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat. Stir in pecan halves.

*Tip:

For the pastry shell, prepare your favorite piecrust recipe or use 1 rolled refrigerated unbaked piecrust (1/2 of a 15-ounce package) or one 9-inch frozen unbaked deep-dish pastry shell. (Be sure to purchase a deep-dish pastry shell; there is too much filling for a shallow frozen pastry shell.)
