Bourbon Chocolate Pecan Chess Pie :: Easy Dessert Recipe

Guests at the Inn enjoy fresh house-baked treats daily in the living room. Friday is Pie-Day at our Santa Fe bed and breakfast.  A guest favorite is our Bourbon Chocolate Pecan Chess Pie with an all butter crust. It is an easy dessert recipe, only taking minutes to put together (once you have the crust made and prepped). Very handy to use a stand mixer because you can simply add the ingrediants one at time to the running mixer.  Enjoy one of our Friday favorites!
