1cupbrowned butter(cooled until solid and then softened at room temp)
1/2cuppacked light brown sugar
1cupmilk chocolate chips
19-inch pie cruststore bought or homemade, thawed
Preheat oven to 350°F degrees and spray a 9-inch pie plate with baking spray.
In the bowl of a stand mixer (or in a medium/large bowl with a hand held mixer), cream browned butter on medium speed until fluffy. Add both sugars; mix until combined.
Add flour and salt. Mix on low speed until mostly combined, then medium speed until fully combined. Scrape sides of bowl as necessary.
Add eggs, vanilla, and bourbon; mix well. Fold in chocolate chips.
Arrange pie crust in the prepared pan. Spoon filling into the pie crust and smooth. Crimp or decorated edges of pie crust as desired. Mix together 1 large egg and 1 tbsp water to make an egg wash. Brush over edges of crust.
Bake for 35-40 minutes, or until pie doesn't jiggle in the center and is golden brown on top. Tent with foil after 15-20 minutes of baking to prevent access browning.
Let pie cool slightly before serving. Serve with ice cream or whipped cream.
