This is an absolute killer chocolate pie, it's easy to make just mix and pour in the pie shell, and it sets just beautifully when baked, I have made this pie and omitted the bourbon it was still so good --- please make two of these to serve for a dinner party everyone will rave! I bake mine on the second lowest oven rack with a baking sheet underneath, although the pie shell was completely full the pie did not overflow, it baked out perfect!

- 4 tablespoons butter
- 1 cup sugar
- 3 eggs, lightly beaten
- 3⁄4 cup light corn syrup

- 2 tablespoons Bourbon
- 2 teaspoons vanilla

- 1⁄2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

I made this with a ready made pie crust, it really set nicely, I usually have trouble with these kinds of pies setting properley, this one set perfectly. next time I will just use 1 tbsp bourbon, the flavor of the bourbon really came through, I made exactly as stated, it is a wonderful pie, and very rich. thank you.
I have made this pie for the past three years and haven't rated it yet, shame on me. My DH insists that I make this pie several times a year even though it is so rich, I would prefer not to...but he loves it just that much...I always give in because it is so very easy to make. My son made four of them one year, and he is a teenager. Everyone always says they taste the bourbon, right before they get another slice, lol.
