Why I Love This Recipe

I have four pecan trees in my yard so I am always on the look out for recipes to utilize this nut. This came from Paula Dean, I tweaked it to fit my family's taste.

Ingredients You'll Need

1 c. sugar
3 T. melted butter
1/2 c. dark corn syrup
3 large eggs, beaten
2 c. pecan pieces
1 to 2 T. bourbon
1 (9 inch) deep dish pie shell, unbaked


Preheat oven to 375 degrees

In a medium bowl, stir together the sugar and melted butter.

Add the corn syrup, eggs, pecans and bourbon and stir to combine.

Pour mixture into an unbaked pie shell.

Place on a heavy-duty cookie sheet.

Bake for 10 min.

Lower the oven temperature to 350

Continue to bake for an additional 30 to 40 min. or until pie is set

Remove from oven and cool on a wire rack.
