Ingredients

  • CLASSIC PIE DOUGH:

  • Yield: 2 balls of dough, enough for 2 (9-inch) single-crust pies or 1 (9-inch) double-crust pie

  • 3

    cups all-purpose flour

  • 1

    tbsp. sugar

  • 1

    tsp. fine salt

  • 1

    cup (2 sticks) cold unsalted butter

  • 3/4

    cups ice cold water

  • FILLING:

  • 1

    ball of Classic Pie Dough (below), chilled

  • 2

    cups pecan halves, toasted

  • 3

    large eggs

  • 3/4

    cup light corn syrup

  • 3

    tbsp. sugar

  • 4

    tbsp. firmly packed dark brown sugar

  • 2

    tbsp. unsalted butter, melted

  • Pinch of salt

  • 1

    tsp. pure vanilla extract

  • 3

    tbsp. bourbon

  • 1

    cup (6 oz.) semisweet chocolate chips

Directions

CRUST: In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, and salt together. Cut the cold butter into cubes and toss the cubes in the flour mixture to coat. Put the mixture in the bowl of a food processor and pulse in short bursts until the pieces of butter are the size of hazelnuts. While pulsing in quick, 4-second bursts, drizzle the ice water into the food processor through the feed tube. As soon as the dough comes together in a ball, remove it from the food processor and divide it into two equal balls, Flatten to a disk and wrap each disk first in parchment paper and then in plastic wrap. Refrigerate the disks until firm, about 1 hour. (The dough can be refrigerated for up to 3 days or frozen for up to 3 months. Thaw in the refrigerator before proceeding with the recipe.) PIE: Dust work surface with a sprinkling of flour. Unwrap the ball of chilled dough and put it directly on the work surface. Roll out into a 12-inch round. Transfer the dough to a pie dish and carefully work it into the pie dish, folding any overhang under and crimping the edge as you go. Wrap and freeze the crust until firm, about 2 hours, or up to 3 months. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Coarsely chop ¾ cup of the pecans. Set aside. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs until combined. Add the corn syrup, sugars, butter, salt, vanilla, and bourbon. Whisk again until combined. Stir in the chopped pecans and set the filling aside. Spread the chocolate chips evenly along the bottom of the frozen pie shell. Slowly pour the filling on top of the chocolate chips. Arrange the remaining 1 ¼ cups pecan halves on top of the filling. Bake in the center of the oven for 30 minutes, then cover the edges of the crust loosely with the aluminum foil and bake for another 30 minutes. Test the pie by sticking a knife in the center of the filling. If the knife comes out clean, the pie is done. If the knife comes out with clumps of filing sticking to it, bake for another 5 minutes and test again. Cool the pie on a wire rack and serve warm or at room temperature. The pie can be stored in the refrigerator, tightly covered, for up to 2 days.
