I'm trying a recipe for a recipe panel and was told I can make any substitutions and modifications I want. What can I use in place of the corn syrup?
Makes 12 wedges
Pastry for 9-inch pie, homemade or store-bought
4 large eggs
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup light corn syrup
3 tablespoons butter, melted
2 tablespoons bourbon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup pecans (4 ounces), toasted and coarsely chopped
1. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Line the pie shell with foil or waxed paper
and fill with pie weights. Bake for 8 minutes, just to set the crust. Leave
the oven on.
2. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, lightly beat the eggs. Whisk in the brown
sugar, corn syrup, melted butter, bourbon and salt.
3. Sprinkle the chocolate chips over the bottom of the pie shell. Pour in
the filling. Sprinkle the pecans evenly over the top. Bake for 35 to 45
minutes, or until the edges of the filling are firm and the center is set
but still at little quivery, like gelatin. If the edges of the crust start
to brown too quickly, cover them with strips of foil.
4. Let cool for at least 1-1/2 hours. Serve warm or at room temperature. If
you make it ahead and refrigerate it, then warm in a 275°F oven for 15
minutes before serving (this is to melt the chocolate a bit).
