Maple Bourbon Pecan Pie



Maple Bourbon Pecan Pie - a new Thanksgiving Favorite!





 
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. 
 
Either make one pie crust, or use a Pillsbury ready crust.  Put 1 1/2 cups of pecans on the bottom of the crust.  I use 1/2 cup of chopped pecans, and 1 cup of halves.  Mix the following ingredients:
2 lg eggs, beaten
1/4 cup of brown sugar
1 cup of pure maple syrup
2 Tablespoons of molasses
2 Tablespoons of Bourbon
2 Tablespoons of melted butter
2 Tablespoons of flour
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
pinch of salt
 
Pour the mixture over the pecans.  Don't worry, the pecans will float to the top.  Bake at 375 degrees for 40-45 minutes.  After 20-30 minutes, check the crust edges, and either cover with a pie safe or tin foil to prevent the edges from getting too brown.  I like this pie served warm with real whipped cream.

  1. Why would this be called bourbon pecan pie if there is no bourbon in it?
