    EdsGirlAngie's Note:

    I first tried this at Cajun Connection in Utica, IL and immediately decided that I needed to master the recipe. Roasting some of the pecans first gives the pie a very nice rich and toasty taste; I added a bit of bourbon whisky just for kicks, but it's totally optional. Pie crust can be your own famous recipe or a purchased one; I hate making pie crust and usually just buy one.

    1. 1
      Dry roast the 1/2 cup of pecan pieces in a 300 degree F oven until dark; keep an eye on them so they don't burn, though. I start checking after 5 minutes and check frequently after that. When they're dark, transfer pecan pieces to a cutting board or plate and crush a little until they're in very small pieces. Set aside.
    2. 2
      Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
    3. 3
      Beat eggs in a large bowl until frothy. Add sugar, brown sugar, corn syrup, butter, vanilla extract, bourbon (if using), salt and reserved roasted pecan pieces. Combine thoroughly then stir in the 1 cup of unroasted pecan halves.
    4. 4
      Pour mixture into an unbaked prepared pie shell, place pan on a baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees F for about 40 minutes.
    5. 5
      Reduce oven heat to 325 degrees F and bake until filling is browned on top and crust is lightly browned; start checking after about 30 minutes in the oven.
    6. 6
      Remove from oven and allow to cool thoroughly before serving.
