    Chef mariajane's Note:

    Chopping the pecans with a knife will produce a fine dust that can cloud the resulting pie, instead, use a rolling pin to gently break the pecans into small, 1/2-inch pieces. Be sure to remove the pie from the oven when the center is set but still wobbly; residual heat will finish the job. The extra bourbon in this pie will please the adults at the table!!

      Remove dough from refrigerator and let stand untl dough is malleable enough to roll out, but still cool, 10 -20 minutes.
