TX Bourbon Pecan Pie

Updated: Dec 29, 2023


Who knew that the great state of Texas had become one of our nation’s best bourbon and whiskey makers! This positively delicious TX Bourbon Pecan Pie is made with Fort Worth’s own smooth TX bourbon. Now, I’ve always been a Kentucky bourbon gal, myself. But, I’ll tell you what… this fabulous Texas bourbon maker is givin’ ol’ Kentucky a run for its money!


TX Bourbon Pecan Pie

Recipe by: Bobbi Jo Lathan

Recipe type: Dessert

Cuisine: Southern

Serves: 6

PREP TIME

5 mins

COOK TIME

45 mins

TOTAL TIME

1 hour

INGREDIENTS

2 cups pecan halves (for topping)

1⁄3 cup crushed pecans (for pastry bottom)

1⁄2 cup granulated sugar

1⁄2 cup dark brown sugar

3 tablespoons butter, melted

3 eggs, beaten

1⁄2 cup light corn syrup

1⁄4 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon vanilla extract 21⁄2 tablespoons TX Bourbon

1 (9-inch) deep-dish pie shell

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°. Next, pour yourself a shot of that TX Bourbon. Drink it all down. Now, you’re in the mood to bake this pie.

  2. Spread the pecan halves evenly, right-side up, onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Place them in your preheated oven for 4-5 minutes until they become aromatic. DO NOT overcook as they will scorch! Remove from the oven and cool.

  3. Mix the sugar, dark brown sugar and melted butter together in a bowl and mix well.

  4. Stir in the beaten eggs, corn syrup, salt, vanilla, and bourbon. Pour yourself another shot while you’re at it.

  5. Place your unbaked deep-dish pie shell on a baking sheet. Get a fork and prick the bottom and sides of the pie shell to prevent any crust bubbles. Then, re-flute the edges of the pie crust to make it look more homemade. (Or you can use your own homemade pie crust, place it in a pie pan, and prick the bottom and sides.)

  6. Place the crushed pecans in your pie shell and pour your filling over them. Take your pecan halves and arrange them neatly over the top of the filling. (You should be feeling very creative by now.)

  7. Bake your pie for 30 minutes. After that, turn the pie so it will bake evenly on all sides.

  8. Bake for another 15 minutes. You’ll know it’s done when it barely jiggles in the middle and the pie crust is nicely browned.

  9. Remove from the oven and let it cool completely on a wire rack.

NOTES

This is when you pour yourself another shot of TX Bourbon as a reward for makin’ the tastiest Texas Bourbon Pecan Pie in town!
