Southern Pecan Pie

"The recipe for this Southern specially originated in Alabama. Its amber filling is stubbed with pecan pieces to add an interesting texture to this rich dessert. Serve it in small wedges with coffee. I found this recipe in My Great Recipes. I have not tried this I'm posting it for a request."

  1. I altered the recipe a bit: no corn syrup, only brown sugar, and I soaked the pecans in Jack Daniels Whiskey for about 30 minutes, and then poured the left over in the filling mixture. Turned out delicious!
