Edlyn, a wonderful friend to us who we don’t get to see often enough, came for dinner one Sunday with her family and a welcomed treat in hand – her homemade pecan pie. This delicious dessert is rich. Even so, a small dollop of ice cream on top sure tastes good.

Bourbon Infused Pecan Pie
1 pie shell, frozen or refrigerated
1½ cup maple syrup
½ cup bourbon whiskey, triple distilled preferred
2 lg. eggs, lightly beaten
¼ cup light or dark brown sugar
⅛ tsp. salt
2 tbsp. butter, melted
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1½ cups pecans

Pour syrup into a small saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Cook 8 – 10 minutes or until syrup has reduced to 1 cup. Stir occasionally. Cool to room temperature.

Preheat oven to 375° F.

Place pie shell on a cookie sheet. Use a fork to poke 3 sets of holes in shell bottom. Cover edge with foil to stop it from browning. Bake 15 – 20 minutes or until dough is pale gold.

Reduce oven temp to 350° F.

Combine all ingredients, except pecans, into a medium-sized bowl and then mix well. Blend in pecans.

Remove foil from pie shell. Pour mixture into shell. Use a fork to evenly distribute pecans.

Bake 30 – 35 minutes or until center is slightly puffed and firm to the touch.

Cool before serving.

May you enjoy all the days of your life filled with good friends, laughter, and seated around a well-laden table!
