Bourbon Pecan Pie

On The Menu Tonight – Bourbon Pecan Pie! My first attempt at making Pecan Pie. I swear I’m not a baker. I tried making pie because my wife needed to bring a dessert for a party at work. Since I hadn’t made this before, I requested she bring me home a slice so I could try it. Before I go on, let me say that I don’t usually test recipes on other people. 99 times out of a hundred, if you are eating my food I’ve made it before and I know it’s good – according to me. 🙂 When Audrey came home she said the pie was a big hit. She went on to say one of the people said it was the best Pecan Pie he’s had and he called himself a Pecan Pie aficionado. When I tried it, I had to agree that it was an excellent piece of pie. The only thing I could have added to make it better would be some ice cream. I hope that you’ll try this recipe and let me know what you think.

Patrick's Famous Bourbon Pecan Pie..


  • Pie Crust:
  • I cheated and used Marie Calendar’s pie crust.
  • Filling:
  • 1 Cup brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 Cup corn syrup dark (you could use light too)
  • 5 tablespoons melted butter (unsalted)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 tablespoons bourbon
  • 3 whole eggs beaten
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • About another cup un-chopped pecans for garnish



Pre-heat oven to 375.


Rough chop 1 cup of the pecans.


Whisk the corn syrup, brown sugar, salt, melted butter, vanilla, and bourbon in a mixing bowl.


Beat the eggs in another bowl, then whisk into the corn syrup mixture.


Put some pecans in the bottom of your prepared pie crust, then pour the filling into the crust.


Put more pecans on top in a decorative pattern. Another option is cook the pie 20-25 minutes, remove and add the pecans in a decorative pattern and cover pie with tin foil to protect the crust from burning.


Return to oven for an additional 30-35 minutes. Test with a knife inserted to center of pie. It should come out clean. Total cook time between 40-50 minutes.


Serve with whipped cream or ice cream.
