Eddie's “Jack Daniel’s” Pecan Pie

High School Band Director Eddie G. sent us this recipe last December and we just have not had a chance to use it until now. Eddie says that this will "knock your sox off!"

3 eggs, slightly beaten
1 cup sugar
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1 cup dark corn syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup Jack Daniel’s Whiskey
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup pecan halves
1 unbaked 10-inch pie shell

In a mixing bowl combine eggs, sugar, butter, syrup, vanilla, and Jack Daniel’s. Mix well. Sprinkle the chocolate chips over the bottom of the unbaked pie shell and add the pecans. Bake at 375 degrees for 35 or 40 minutes, or until a knife inserted about halfway between the center and the edge comes out clean. Cool before serving.

This is awesome with REAL vanilla ice cream.
