The Baker Family's Derby Party Pie

2 eggs

1 cup sugar

1/2 cup melted butter

4 teaspoons bourbon

1/4 cup cornstarch

1 cup pecans (you can chop them if you like, for a smoother texture.)

6 ounces semisweet chocolate chips

In a large mixing bowl, beat the eggs and add the sugar. Mix in melted butter and bourbon. Stir until you have a gritty paste. Stir in cornstarch, then the pecans and chocolate chips.

Pour mixture into a nine-inch piecrust and bake for 45 minutes at 350 degrees.

Let cool for about an hour. The pie should be served warm with a dollop of whipped cream on top. (It can also be refrigerated overnight and reheated before serving.)
