DIRECTIONS

  • 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.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • 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.
  • Pour mixture into an unbaked prepared pie shell, place pan on a baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees F for about 40 minutes.
  • 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.
  • Remove from oven and allow to cool thoroughly before serving.
