The Namesless Crit Group of the Philadelphia Standard Metropolitan Statistical Area met yesterday. mroctober, oracne, and pointoforigin in attendance. There were crits, of the early chapters of mroctober's new YA novel. We had a run-in with a unicorn deer. Also there was pie.

Specifically, Chocolate Bourbon Pecan Pie.

I made the following changes:
Bourbon reduced from 1/4 c to 3 tbs.
Sugar changed to 1 c packed dark brown sugar.
Cinnamon 1/2 tsp added to egg/bourbon/vanilla mixture.
Chocolate chips spread in layer on top of bottom crust before pouring in rest of filling, instead of being incorporated/melted into the filling.

The result was well-received.

Directions for future research: the cinnamon really couldn't be tasted, and probably should be increased. IMO, chocolate and cinnamon is an under-used combination.
