Nutritional Facts

1 piece (calculated without whipped cream) equals 653 calories, 35 g fat (7 g saturated fat), 91 mg cholesterol, 489 mg sodium, 81 g carbohydrate, 3 g fiber, 7 g protein.

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine flour and salt; cut in shortening until crumbly. Gradually add water, tossing with a fork until dough forms a ball. Wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 1 to 1-1/2 hours or until easy to handle.
  2. Roll out pastry to fit a 9-in. pie plate. Transfer pastry to pie plate. Trim pastry to 1/2 in. beyond edge of plate; flute edges. Refrigerate.
  3. Meanwhile, in a large saucepan, combine the brown sugar, corn syrup, molasses, butter and salt; bring to a simmer over medium heat. Cover and stir for 2-3 minutes or until sugar is dissolved. Remove from the heat and cool to room temperature. (Mixture will be thick when cooled.)
  4. Preheat oven to 350°. Stir eggs, bourbon and vanilla into molasses mixture. Stir in pecans. Pour into pastry shell. Bake 55-60 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Cover edges with foil during the last 30 minutes to prevent overbrowning if necessary.
  5. Cool on a wire rack. Serve with whipped cream. Refrigerate leftovers. Yield: 8 servings.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 28, 2014

"I've always been a huge fan of pecan pie, but this one is my all-time favorites and will be my go-to recipe from now on. I made it exactly as the recipe stated and it was delicious! It's not as sweet as the usual recipes and it got a bit of a crispy top on it so it was extra crunchy. Definitely a keeper!"
