Southern Pecan Pie Recipe

This southern pecan pie recipe has NO corn syrup.

To make this pie stand out even more – add a teaspoon of bourbon (to taste), and make it in my walnut pie crust (link below). Adding bourbon to the recipe makes it so special. Heaven on a fork. More homemade pie recipes at the end of the page.

Pecan Pie Tartelettes #MissHomemade

You may also make Pecan Pie Tartelettes.  Just fill them and arrange pecans on top.  Lovely for individual servings.  I love these topped with Bourbon whipped cream.  Delicious.
