Kentucky Chocolate and Walnut Pie

Yes, please!!  I want some now :)

It is amazing how easy prepared pie crusts make it possible to create gorgeous and delicious pies.  The recipe is easy, the ingredients readily available . . . the only problem I would have is waiting three hours for it to cool . . .

Some notes from Pillsbury:

Pecans are also very popular in the South. You can substitute broken pecans for the walnuts in this recipe.

If you don't care for bourbon, omit it and use 1 teaspoon vanilla instead.
