Reviews for Bourbon Chocolate Pecan Pie
"Disappointed. No one liked it and ended up throwing it out. Too much chocolate."
"This pie was good--made three this weekend. However, I don't like to the taste of the bourbon, so when I made the pie again, I substituted a little white corn syrup, a tsp. of vanilla, and water for the liquor. I also prefer not so much dark sugar/syrup, so I used light brown sugar. This is a keeper!"
"Family enjoyed it"
"Decadent and Delicious!"

"Sinfully rich and delicious. Got rave reviews from everyone."
"Everyone raved about this pie! It was amazing."
"This pie is excellent however it needs to be refrigerated prior to serving to"tighten up" the filling."
