BOURBON PECAN PIE
This is a classic and simple recipe given a Southern kick with a little bourbon. The alcohol will evaporate when you bake the pie, and you're left with a richly flavored, gooey dessert, intensely sweet with a baseline of vanilla. You do need both light and dark corn syrup for this - using only one or the other will change the pie's flavor. (Don't let making your own pie crust intimidate you: our pie guide has everything you need to know.)

FAVORITE CHOCOLATE-BOURBON PECAN TART
I grew up in Louisiana where, as in most of the South, pecan pie is a staple. This tart variation is extra good because it includes chocolate. I decided to up the decadence even more by adding bourbon and drizzling some caramel on top. -Amber Needham, San Antonio, Texas

THE BEST PECAN PIE
This pie delivers plenty of classic flavors like brown sugar, vanilla and toasted nuts. We found that bourbon made a welcome addition. The alcohol bakes off leaving behind irresistible notes of smoke and caramel. Our all-butter crust perfectly balances the sweetness of the filling.

- For the crust: Whisk together the flour, granulated sugar and salt in a medium bowl. Using your fingers, work the butter into the dry ingredients until it resembles yellow cornmeal mixed with bean-size bits of butter. (If the flour/butter mixture gets warm, refrigerate it for 10 minutes before proceeding.) Add the egg and stir the dough together with a fork or by hand in the bowl. If the dough is dry, sprinkle up to a tablespoon more of cold water over the mixture.
- Alternatively, pulse the flour, sugar, and salt in a food processor fitted with the metal blade until combined. Add the butter and pulse until it resembles yellow cornmeal mixed with bean-size bits of butter, about 10 times. Add the egg and pulse 1 to 2 times; don't let the dough form into a ball in the machine. (If the dough is very dry add up to a tablespoon more of cold water.) Remove the bowl from the machine, remove the blade and bring the dough together by hand.
- Form the dough into a disk, wrap with plastic wrap and refrigerate until thoroughly chilled, at least 1 hour.
- Roll the dough on a lightly-floured surface into a 12-inch circle about 1/8-inch thick. Transfer the dough to a 9-inch pie pan and trim the edges, leaving about an extra inch hanging over the edge. Tuck the overhanging dough underneath itself to form a thick
- edge that is even with the rim. Flute the edge as desired. Freeze the pie shell for 30 minutes.
- Arrange the racks in the center and lower third of the oven and preheat to 400 degrees F. Put a piece of parchment paper or foil over the pie shell and fill with dried beans or pie weights. Bake on a baking sheet on the center rack until the dough is set, about 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and lift the sides of the parchment to remove the beans. Continue baking until the pie shell is lightly golden brown, about 10 more minutes. Reduce the oven temperature to 350 degrees F.
- While the crust is baking make the filling: Combine the butter, brown sugar, corn syrup, and salt in medium saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat and, stirring constantly, continue to boil for 1 minute. Remove from the heat and stir in the nuts, bourbon and vanilla. Set it aside to cool slightly, about 5 minutes. (If the crust has cooled, return it to the oven for 5 minutes to warm through.) Whisk the beaten eggs into the filling until smooth. Put the pie shell on a baking sheet and pour the filling into the hot crust.
- Bake on the lower rack until the edges are set but the center is still slightly loose, 40 to 45 minutes. (If the edges get very dark, cover them with aluminum foil half way during baking.) Cool on a wire rack. Serve slightly warm or at room temperature.
BOURBON PECAN PIE
- To make the crust: Chill the butter in the freezer for 15 minutes.
- Pulse the pecans 6 to 7 times in a food processor or until finely ground. Add the flour and salt, and pulse an additional 4 to 5 times. Add the butter and pulse 6 to 7 times, until the texture looks mealy. Remove the lid of the food processor, add the water and bourbon, and pulse 5 to 6 times until the mixture holds together when squeezed and feels like dough. Transfer the dough to a gallon-sized zip-top bag, squeeze together until it forms a ball, then press into a rounded disk and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
- To assemble and bake the pie: Heat the oven to 350 degrees F.
- Whisk the eggs, sugar, golden syrup, butter, bourbon, vanilla and salt together until combined. Set aside.
- Remove the dough from the refrigerator. Cut along two sides of the zip-top bag, open the bag to expose the dough and sprinkle both sides very lightly with flour. Cover with the bag and roll out with a rolling pin to an 11-inch circle. Open the bag again, and sprinkle the top of the dough with flour. Place the dough into a 9 1/2 to 10-inch tart pan that is 2 inches deep. Gently press the dough into the sides of the pan, crimping and trimming the edges as necessary.
- Evenly sprinkle the 6 ounces of chopped pecans in the crust and pour the filling on top. Bake for 20 minutes. Place the remaining 2 ounces of whole pecans in a border on the edge of the filling. Bake 10 minutes, until the center of the pie should reach 200 degrees F, and a skewer inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool on a cooling rack to room temperature before serving, 3 1/2 to 4 hours.
- Line a half sheet pan with parchment paper and set aside.
- Mix the salt, cumin, cayenne, cinnamon and orange peel together in a small bowl and set aside.
- Place the nuts in a 10-inch cast-iron skillet and set over medium heat. Cook, stirring frequently, for 4 to 5 minutes until they just start to brown and smell toasted. Add the butter and stir until it melts. Add the spice mixture and stir to combine. Once combined, add both sugars and water, stirring until the mixture thickens and coats the nuts, 2 to 3 minutes.
- Transfer the nuts to the prepared sheet pan and separate them with a fork or spatula. Allow the nuts to cool completely before transferring to an airtight container for storage. Can be stored for up to 3 weeks. Yield: 1 pound.

- Add the flour, sugar, and salt to the bowl of a food processor, or a large bowl if using a pastry blender. Pulse or whisk until the mixture is combined.
- Add the butter and pulse until most of the butter is broken into pea-size pieces, about 15 pulses. There will be some larger pieces of butter, and that's a good thing. If using a pastry blender, blend the butter until it's pea size.
- Add the cold water and vinegar to a cup and pour the liquid over the crumbly flour-butter mixture. Pulse until it looks like tiny clumps (like space dots ice cream), and there are no large pockets of flour. If using a pastry blender, use a large rubber spatula for this step, folding until no large pockets of flour remain.
- Tip the mixture onto your work surface and use a light touch to gather the dough together and pat it down until it's about 1 inch thick. Fold the dough in half, then pat it back down to a 1-inch block. Repeat twice, then pat and gather the dough into 2 round discs, smoothing the sides so they aren't dry and crumbly. Wrap the discs tightly in plastic and let them rest in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes, and up to 3 days.
- When ready to par-bake the pie crust, preheat oven to 350°F. On a lightly floured surface, roll out one disc of pie dough to an 11-inch circle, and transfer it to a 9-inch pie plate. Fit the dough into the pie plate, trimming any edge overhang that's greater than 1 inch.
- Prick the dough all over with the tines of a fork. Fit a piece of aluminum foil or parchment paper on the crust, leaving enough overhang so that you use the edges to lift it out later. (I like to use foil because I can easily cover the edges to prevent them from cooking too quickly, but parchment paper works, too.) Fill with pie weights or dried beans so the dough holds its shape and doesn't puff up.
- Bake on the middle rack until the bottom of the crust is dried out, about 20 minutes. You know it's ready if, when you lift out the foil or parchment, it doesn't stick. Carefully remove the pie crust from the oven by sliding it out and holding it from the bottom, so that you don't disturb the sides or edges of the crust (best to use two oven mitts). Carefully remove the parchment paper or foil and the pie weights or beans. Set the pan on a cooling rack for the crust to cool.
- In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, melted butter, cornmeal, vanilla, and salt.
- Combine the cane syrup, sugars, and bourbon in a medium saucepan set over medium heat. Use a wooden spoon or whisk to stir continually. When the syrup starts to boil, cook an additional 2 minutes, then remove the pan from the heat.
- Use one hand to continually whisk the egg mixture and use the other hand to slowly pour one-third of the hot syrup into the egg mixture. Continually whisking tempers the eggs so they can be heated without scrambling. Pour the egg mixture into the saucepan with the syrup, continuing to whisk constantly. Stir in the pecans and set aside for 30 minutes to let the syrup mixture cool.
- If you've turned the oven off, preheat to 350° and place a rack in the middle of the oven.
- When the syrup is at room temperature, pour it into the par-baked pie crust and bake until the center of the pie is just set and doesn't jiggle, and a knife inserted into the center comes out clean, 50 to 55 minutes.
- Remove the pie from the oven and let cool on a wire rack for at least 2 hours so the filling can firm up. Slice and serve.

- Combine the flour, salt and baking powder in the bowl of a food processor fitted with the metal blade. Pulse a few times to combine. Add the pieces of butter and shortening and pulse until you have coarse crumbs with lots of pea and chickpea-sized clumps of butter and shortening within. Add the water and pulse a few times until the mixture is just evenly moistened and very crumbly. It will not come together into a mass -- that's okay. Dump the crumbly dough out onto a work surface and gather it into a ball. Pat the dough into a 5-inch disc -- don't worry if the edges crack -- and wrap it in plastic. Refrigerate for at least 45 minutes or up to 3 days to rest.
- Take the dough out of the refrigerator (if it was in the fridge for a long time, let it sit on the countertop for 10-15 minutes so that it's malleable enough to roll). Dust your work surface lightly with flour and place the dough on top; sprinkle a little flour over the dough. Use your hands to quickly work the dough into a smooth disc -- don't overwork it or warm it up too much, just smooth the edges as best as you can so it's easier to roll. With a rolling pin, roll the dough, turning it frequently and adding more flour as necessary so it doesn't stick, into a 13-inch circle. Fold the dough into quarters without creasing it and transfer it to a 9-inch deep dish pie pan (the pan should be at least 1=1/2 inches deep). Gently fit the dough into the pan, easing it inwards rather than stretching it outwards. Don't worry if it tears, just patch it right back up. Trim the edges to 1/2-inch beyond the lip of the pie pan, if necessary. Turn the edges under to create a rim on the crust (you ca
- Preheat the oven to 400°F. Remove the crust from the refrigerator and place it on a baking sheet (this makes it easy to move in and out of the oven). Cover the crust with a piece of parchment paper and fill it at least halfway full with dried beans or pie weights. Bake for 20 minutes, or until the crust is pale and partially cooked. Remove the parchment and dried beans/pie weights and set aside while you prepare the filling.
