Recipe Notes

Notes & Tips

  1. To prevent messy spills in the oven, place the pie pan on a large rimmed baking sheet to bake.
  2. To keep the edges of the pie crust from browning too quickly, you may need to cover them with foil part way through or use a pie shield. Check the pie after 10 or 15 minutes in the oven. If the edges are browning too quickly, add foil or the pie shield.


  1. You may substitute 1 cup of walnuts for the pecans in this recipe.
  2. If you prefer not to use bourbon, you can omit it from the recipe, substituting 1 1/2 teaspoons of vanilla.
