Bourbon-pecan Pumpkin Pie
Pies & Pastries
Half & half
Pie shell, 9",
Combine eggs, pumpkin, 3/4 cup sugar, half-and-half, 3 tablespoons bourbon, cinnamon, ginger, and salt; mix well. Pour mixture into the pie shell; bake at 425 for 10 minutes. Reduce heat to 350, and bake an additional 45 minutes or until set. Set aside to cool. Combine butter and 1/4 cup brown sugar in a saucepan; cook over medium heat, stirring until sugar dissolved.
Add pecans and 2 tablespoons bourbon, stirring to coat. Spoon mixture over the pie. Heat the remaining bourbon in a saucepan just long enough to produce fumes (do not boil); remove from heat, ignite, and pour over pie.
Serve pie when flames die down.
