Bourbon Pecan Pie

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!
