“This pie is really yummy and naughty. But perhaps one only for adults? Make one without the bourbon for the kids, or treat them all to ice cream instead.”

  2. Blind bake the crust: allow pie crust to reach room temperature.
  3. Line 9" pie pan with crust; fold excess dough over around edges and flute.
  4. Prick crust bottom & sides with a fork and chill pie crust for 30 minutes.
  5. Line crust with parchment and fill with pie weights (or dry beans) and bake for 10 minutes. Remove and let cool while preparing filling. Remove pie weights and parchment.

  8. Stir in the chopped pecans.
  9. Pour the mixture into the crust; arrange pecan halves in concentric circles on top of the filling.
  10. To bake, place onto a baking sheet, gently set a crust protector onto the exposed crust, and bake for 50-55 minutes at 350F until a knife inserted halfway between the crust & center comes out clean.
