Chocolate Bourbon Pie

When choosing what pies I was making for a birthday party, I decided that for a guy that likes both chocolate and bourbon I couldn't go wrong with a chocolate bourbon pie.
My husband's feelings on this were "ooooh rich chocolate. and then ooooo bourbon". Take that as you will.
yield: one 9" pie

1 refrigerated pie crust
2oz semisweet chocolate chips
1C (2 sticks) salted butter, cold
½C unsweetened cocoa powder
1 ½C sugar
3 tbs Lyle's golden syrup
3 tbs sour cream
4 eggs, room temperature
1 egg yolk, room temperature
¼C bourbon
1 tsp vanilla extract

  1. Bake pie crust according to package directions. Let cool.
  2. Preheat oven to 325°.
  3. In a heatproof bowl (or double boiler), melt chocolate and butter.
  4. Remove from heat, add cocoa and whisk until blended.
  5. Add sugar, syrup, and sour cream; whisk until blended.
  6. Whisk in eggs, egg yolk, bourbon, and vanilla until just combined.
  7. Pour into pie crust.
  8. Place pie shield (or aluminum foil) over the crust and edges of the pan.
  9. Bake for 40-42 minutes, until the edges are slightly puffed and the center of the filling jiggles slightly when the pan is gently shaken.
  10. Let cool completely on a wire rack.
  11. Cover until ready to serve.
  12. Enjoy!
