Pecan pie is by far my favorite type of pie to make during the Thanksgiving holiday. It’s certainly the most simple type of pie to make.

The bourbon emphasizes the smoky tones of the pecans and works with the chocolate chips to create the perfect balance of smoky and sweet that every pie needs. It truly is as easy as mixing together all the ingredients and pouring it into the pie crust. This pie is sure to impress your family during the holiday season.
