A recipe for a bourbon pecan pie is Paula Deen's "Douglas' Dark Rum Pecan Pie." Cooks can find the recipe on the Food Network website. The recipe calls for 10 minutes of preparation and 35 minutes of cooking time.
The recipe requires a 9-inch deep pie shell bought pre-made. Other ingredients include 1 cup sugar, 3 tablespoons melted butter, 1/2 cup dark corn syrup, 1 1/2 to 2 cups of pecan halves and 3 large beaten eggs. The recipe calls for 2 tablespoons of high quality bourbon. Before mixing all of the ingredients together, preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
Start by mixing the sugar and eggs in a medium-sized bowl. Once the eggs and sugar are well mixed, add corn syrup, eggs, pecans and bourbon. Stir until all ingredients are mixed into the mixture. After all the ingredients are combined, pour them into the uncooked pie shell.
For best results, place the pie on a heavy-duty cookie sheet. After baking the pie for 10 minutes, lower the oven's temperature to 350 degrees Fahrenheit for the remaining 25 minutes. When the pie is set, remove it from the oven and place it on a wire rack to cool, and then serve.
