This recipe actually calls for two regular 9-inch pie crusts, so for Thanksgiving it made two pies. I used everything, even the bourbon, and it gave the pie a nice kick. Everyone loved it. If you don't like extremely rich desserts, I would leave out the chocolate chips.

I made this pie without the bourbon, and it was delicious.
