Baking: Pecan Pie and a Jack

The holiday is around the corner and I like to enjoy my family on the holiday. So I bake ahead as much as possible and freeze what I can. Today we are baking pecan pie and a pie we had a dinner party. I want to try a new pie: A Jack Daniel's Chocolate Chip Pecan Pie. Now the

Jack Daniel's Chocolate Chip Pecan Pie
3 extra-large eggs, slightly beaten
1 cup sugar
2 TBS butter, melted
1 cup dark corn syrup
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup Jack Daniels
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup whole pecans
1 (10-inch) piecrust, unbaked

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Combine eggs, sugar, butter, syrup, and whiskey. Mix well and strain. Sprinkle most of the chips over the bottom of crust. Cover with pecans. Pour filling over chips and pecans. Sprinkle top with remaining chips. Bake 35 to 40 minutes or until knife inserted halfway between center and edge comes out clean (chips sprinkled on top will make this difficult - they melt.) Let cool at least 30 minutes before cutting.
