Maple Bourbon Pecan Pie

This is a really sad post for me.  Don’t get me wrong, this pie was delicious!  I’m sad because I worked sooooo hard (let’s say the better part of an hour) making this beautiful pie crust only to have it totally freak out on me and shrink.  I have NEVER had this happen before and of course it happened when I was baking for Thanksgiving for 12 people.  Lovely.  I’m just going to stick with this is now a “rustic” pecan pie…


  • 1 pie crust
  • Cooking spray
  • 3/4 c. pecan halves
  • 1/4 c. finely chopped pecans
  • 1/2 c. maple syrup
  • 1/2 c. dark corn syrup
  • 3 TBS brown sugar
  • 2 TBS butter, melted
  • 2 TBS bourbon
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp. kosher salt
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 2 large egg whites, lightly beaten

Preheat oven to 350°.

Roll dough into a 12-inch circle. Fit dough into a 9-inch pie plate coated with cooking spray, draping excess dough over edges. Fold edges under, and flute. Chill in freezer 15 minutes.

Combine pecans and remaining ingredients in a bowl, stirring well to combine. Pour filling into prepared crust. Bake at 350° for 38 minutes or until center of pie is almost set (shield edges of piecrust with foil if crust gets too brown). Cool on wire rack.
