Pecan Pie for 2

"Based on Debby Maugans Nakos's Southern Pecan Pie in her Small-Batch Baking book. She gave directions for making a spiked whipped cream, but this pie is so rich and wonderful as it is, I can't imagine it needing a topping. The pecan halves can be found easily and inexpensively in the baking section of your grocery store in 1/2 cup bags. I'm giving the author's option of using bourbon in the pie, but I did not use it myself. Debby recommends Southern Comfort for the pie, but if you use another bourbon, she suggests you might want to add another tablespoon of sugar. For the pie crust recipe/information, please see Pie Crusts for 2, I have also posted."

directions

  • Make sure you have a rack in the center of your oven and preheat to 350°F.
  • In a mixing bowl, whisk the sugar, egg, corn syrup, melted butter, vanilla, salt, and bourbon (optional). Mix until everything is well blended.
  • Place half of the pecans in each crust. Pour the filling evenly into both crusts. Bake for about 30 minutes, or until the filling is set.
  • Note: This recipe assumes you use pie crusts partially baked in a 4 by 1-3/4 inch tart pan or jumbo muffin tin. I made mine in 4 by 1-1/2 inch cake pans. I think next time I make this, if I am pressed for time, I may cut a 6-inch round from refrigerated pie crust and use in my pans to see how it works.

I've been hanging around here for awhile, so I guess filling this part out is overdue...:oops: (6/09) I am a teacher, married to a pretty swell fella, and have a spoiled rotten princess, er, I mean, cat. I'm pretty eclectic with my passions - obviously cooking and eating being high on the list! I love to read (from cookbooks to horror/suspense to fiction, fantasy, sci-fi to nonfiction...if it's still long enough, I'll read it). I make beaded jewelry, mostly bead weaving, some stringing. Enjoy listening to most sorts of music - and it's a darn shame I can't dance, sing, or have any sort of rhythm. Computer geek at heart - I'm frequently on the net or playing games in my spare time. I also like drawing and writing, but I don't have as much time to do as much as I used to. I have amassed quite the Good Eats DVD collection (thanks to my DH.... and he's sweet enough to make sure I've picked up the plungers and dino squirt bottle along the way :D). And to complete the quintessential nerd profile, yes, I do read comics. I couldn't pick a single favorite cookbook, but golly, I looove fundraiser cookbooks. Talk about tried and true! I tend to collect all sorts of cookbooks, most of them southern cooking. Guess I cook what I know. If you ever try any of my recipes - thank you! I hope they tickle your tastebuds! <img src="http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j166/ZaarNicksMom/PACsticker-Adopted.jpg">
