Serves | Prep Time | Cook Time 45


1 cup dark corn syrup
3/4 cup sugar
6 tablespoons butter
3 large eggs
1/8 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons bourbon
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups pecan halves
1 large pie crust -- deep dish
1 large glass pie pan -- 9-inch

To make filling, combine corn syrup and sugar in saucepan and stir to mix. Remove from heat, add butter and allow butter to melt. In a mixing bowl, whisk eggs until liquid and whisk in salt, bourbon, cinnamon and vanilla extract. Whisk in syrup and butter mixture, being careful not to over mix. Allow to cool.

Set oven rack at the lowest level of the oven and preheat to 350 degrees F. Arrange pecans on crust. Skim any foam from top of filling and pour over the pecans.

With the back of a fork, press the pecans down into the filling so that they are covered. Bake the pie for about 45 minutes, until the crust is baked through and the filling is set and well puffed in the center.

This makes a great pecan pie

Sounds a lot like my Pecan Pie, Reuben. I call mine Comfortable Southern Pie and put a little Southern Comfort in it.
