corn syrup, light or dark
unbaked pie shell
flaky sea salt, optional
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. F.
Prepare the pie crust. If making your own. Roll out the dough and place in a 9" pie plate, crimp the edges.
In a medium bowl lightly beat the eggs and milk until combined, then add the sugar, corn syrup, melted butter, vanilla, bourbon, and salt; stir well until the mixture is combined.
Stir in the pecans then pour the mixture into the prepared pie crust.
Bake for 55-65 minutes. The pie should be almost completely set but still bounce bake in the center.
All the pie to cool for 2 hours on a wire rack. Sprinkle with flaky sea salt before serving, if desired.
As the pie bakes check the color to make sure it's not getting too dark. You can cover the pie with a sheet of foil to keep it from getting too dark.
This pie can be made without the bourbon.
