Before I met Bruce, I had never tasted bourbon pecan pie. As a matter of fact, I had never had pecan pie at all. In light of Bruce growing up in Kentucky, ya know bourbon would come into play! Ordinarily I am not a huge bourbon fan, but there is something magical about bourbon and pecans in this golden mixture of goodness!

Instructions for making bourbon pecan pie:
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
- Beat eggs until smooth. Add in sugar, both corn syrups, butter, bourbon, vanilla and salt. Mix until combined.
- Prick the sides and bottom of the pie shell with a fork. Spread the pecan halves into the bottom of the pie crust and pour mixture over the top of the pecans. Bake for 60-70 minutes until edges are set and middle is slightly loose. The middle will continue to set as it cools. Move to wire rack and cool completely.
