kentucky derby pie


1/4 cup bourbon

1/4 cup cornstarch

3 eggs, slightly beaten

1/2 cup light corn syrup

3/4 cup sugar

1/2 cup melted butter

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 cup chopped walnuts

3/4 cup bittersweet chocolate chips



Roll out dough into a circle 12" in diameter. Trim and crimp the edges and set in the freezer until it's needed. Preheat the oven for 350 degrees. In a bowl, whisk together the bourbon and the cornstarch until the cornstarch is dissolved. Stir in eggs, corn syrup, sugar, butter, vanilla, and walnuts. Scatter the chocolate chips onto the bottom of the pie shell. Pour the walnut syrup mixture over the chocolate. Bake on the middle rack of the oven for an hour. Halfway through baking time, if the pie is looking too dark, cover it with foil. Allow to cool for at least an hour before serving.
