Southern Style Bourbon Pecan Pie - Love That Spice


3/4 cup sugar

1/2 cup dark corn syrup

2 1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter cut into cubes

1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1 1/2 teaspoons bourbon

1/4 teaspoon Kosher salt

2 large eggs

cooking spray

1 sheet refrigerated pie dough

1 cup pecan pieces

Vanilla whip cream (regular works just fine)

Fresh shaved nutmeg to put on top of the whipped cream (optional)


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Stir the sugar and corn syrup in a sauce pan over medium heat until the sugar dissolves. Remove from heat

Add butter and let melt slowly stirring with a rubber spatula to keep the mixture from getting foamy

Gently stir in the vanilla, bourbon and salt

Whisk the eggs in a medium bowl. Gradually add the sugar mixture, whisking until well blended

Lightly spray 4 inch individual pie pans with cooking spray

Unfold the pie dough and cut into quarters, press each piece into the pan and crimp the edges with your finger (or a fork), place on a baking sheet

Divide the pecans evenly among the pie shells and pour the filling on top

Bake the pies until golden and firm, about 40 minutes. Cool completely, remove from the pans and serve with whipped cream and freshly shaved nutmeg.
