Jack Daniels Pecan Pie

There must be at least a dozen “official” recipes for this pie. I’ve taken a couple of them and transformed them into one that seemed to work out fine.

Give this a try and don’t be afraid to experiment a little.



  • 4 eggs lightly beaten
  • 1 c. Light corn syrup
  • 4 tbsp white granulated sugar
  • 4 tbsp light brown sugar
  • 4 tbsp butter melted
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 tsp table salt
  • 2/3 c. Finely chopped pecans
  • 3/4 c. Jack Daniels
  • 1 deep dish frozen pie crust unbaked
  • 3 oz semi sweet or bitter sweet chocolate chips (half bag)
  • 1 1/2 c. Pecan halves


Preheat oven 350f


Combine first 9 ingredients in a large bowl.

Arrange chocolate chips on bottom of pie crust. Gently tap them on unbaked crust.

Pour filling over chips.

This is where you can make your pie look like a masterpiece. Gently set the pecan halves over filling. They will float and stay on top.

Bake on a sheet (to catch spills) for 50 to 60 minutes.  The pie is done when a toothpick or knife inserted in the middle comes out clean .

Allow to cool to room temperature, then refrigerate for at least an hour.

Serve with whipped cream.
