Chocolate Bourbon Pie
This is one version of the famous Derby Day pie, no doubt brought to Texas by a Kentuckian.
Combine the chocolate squares and butter in the top of a double boiler over very hot water, stirring constantly until melted and blended. Remove from heat.
Sprinkle flour over chocolate/butter mixture. Stir until well blended. Set aside.
In a mixing bowl, combine the beaten eggs, salt, vanilla and corn syrup. Gradually, a little at a time, blend the egg mixture into the chocolate mixture. Stir in bourbon and pecans and blend thoroughly. Pour into crust.
Bake for 40 to 45 minutes. Let cool. Garnish with whipped cream and grated chocolate, or serve warm with vanilla ice cream.
