Bourbon Pecan Pie

Hey! I am so glad you stopped by to check out my recent bakes. My name is Kelsey. I love baking all things but especially pies and pastries. Follow me along on my journey!

For Thanksgiving I typically make a pumpkin roll and a pie (different every year). If I could bake every single thanksgiving pie and dessert I totally would haha! However, the last few years I have also been in charge of making a baked mac and cheese, corn pudding, cranberry salad and mashed potatoes. I love thanksgiving! I mean doesn’t everyone? You get to eat all the best food of the year… It’s a no brainer! It is also good to see family you don’t get to see as often, we love to play games together. Last year I made a regular pecan pie but saw a lot of recipes out there that added bourbon or spiced rum, so this year I tried one of those! I don’t think I will ever make a classic pecan pie again, I loved the addition of the bourbon, we used Maker’s Mark. It adds a deeper flavor to a typically very sweet pie, don’t worry though, this recipe is still very sweet haha! I would like to try a spiced rum next time to see how that changes the flavor.


  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup sugar
  • ½ cup light corn syrup
  • ½ cup dark corn syrup
  • ⅓ cup butter melted
  • 2 tbsp. bourbon or spiced rum

  3. Add pecans, stir until just incorporated.
  4. Prick sides and bottom of pie shell, pour mixture in.
  5. Bake 35-45 minutes, until just set around the edges but still loose in the center.
