1789 Restaurant's Bourbon Walnut Pie

We have only been to DC's historic Old Ebbitt Grill two times, but we have stopped for dessert on both occasions. And this is why: bourbon walnut pie.

So I went online, and couldn't believe that they actually had the exact recipe on sister restaurant 1789's home page! (which I can no longer find; so glad I printed it!)

Really the best way I can describe it is this: chocolate chip cookie pie. With nuts. And hooch.

1789 Restaurant's Bourbon Walnut Pie
2/3 c. sugar
1 stick salted butter
1/3 c. flour
2 eggs
1 c. chocolate chips
1 c. walnut pieces
1 T. Jack Daniels, or equivalent

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Melt butter in a medium saucepan, making sure butter is very hot. Turn off heat. Add sugar and flour, whisking well. In separate bowl, beat eggs slightly with a fork. Add a small amount of hot butter mixture into eggs, stirring rapidly. Pour egg mixture into saucepan. Add chocolate chips, walnuts, and Jack Daniels.

Meanwhile, prepare a 10-inch pie crust. (I use Pillsbury pre-made pie dough!) Pour pie filling into unbaked pie shell. Bake at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes, then cover edges of pie crust with foil so it doesn't burn. Return to oven for remaining 30 minutes, until filling is set and baked through. (45 minutes total)

(Best served, in my opinion, with vanilla ice cream.)

So freaking easy and so freaking good
