Bourbon Pecan Pie. Classics are classic for a reason. Pecan Pie--sticky, crunchy, nutty, sweet, buttery, and golden is always a crowd-pleaser. This Bourbon Pecan Pie from Paula Deen is bound to be the best you’ve ever made, seeping with southern hospitality just like Paula herself.

This easy pecan pie tastes of dark caramel, toasted nuts and a little bit of bourbon. Cheryl Day designed the recipe to work with a range of less-refined sweeteners, from honey to cane syrup.
