Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Make Double-Crust Pie Pastry. Roll one pastry ball into a 12-inch circle on a lightly floured surface. Fold pastry circle into fourths; transfer to a 9-inch pie plate. Unfold and ease pastry into pie plate without stretching. Trim pastry to edge of pie plate. Prick bottom and side of pastry with fork.
It's like a pecan pie but with walnuts, chocolate chips, whiskey, and the flakiest crust... ever!
