THIS pie was THE highlight of our Thanksgiving feast. It was just perfect....and the sauce. Holy guacamole Batman! This sauce was completely divine and I am squeezing my squishy brain to find out what else I can drizzle it over...bread pudding....pumpkin cheesecake....toast.
It was immediately requested to come back at Christmas, or Tuesday, which ever comes first.
Seriously guys, give this one a try!
Pecan Pie with Whiskey Maple Cream Sauce
recipe adapted from Pioneer Woman
- 1 whole unbaked pie crust. Make your own or take some help from the store. I used Trader Joe's frozen pie crust, cuz that's how I roll...
- 1 cup white sugar
- 3 TBSP brown sugar
- ½ tsp salt
- 1 cup dark karo syrup
- 1 tsp vanilla
- ⅓ cups butter (salted), melted
- 3 eggs, beaten
- 1 heaping cup chopped Pecans. I found the chopped pecans made a HUGE difference!
Mix sugar, brown sugar, salt, corn syrup, butter, eggs, and vanilla together in a bowl.
Pour chopped pecans in the bottom of the unbaked pie shell.
Pour syrup mixture over the top. Cover top and crust lightly/gently with foil and bake for 40 minutes. Remove foil, then continue baking for 20 minutes, being careful not to burn the crust or pecans.
NOTE: PIE SHOULD NOT BE OVERLY JIGGLY WHEN YOU REMOVE IT FROM THE OVEN. If it shakes a lot, cover with foil and bake for an additional 10 minutes or until set.
Whiskey Maple Cream Sauce
recipe from Pioneer Woman
- 1-½ cup Heavy Cream
- 5 TBSP pure Maple Syrup. NOT Mrs. Butterworths...REAL Maple Syrup!
- 3 TBSP light Corn Syrup
- 1 TBSP Whiskey (can Add More If Desired)
Combine cream, maple syrup, and corn syrup in a saucepan and stir to combine. Cook over medium-low to medium heat, stirring constantly, for 15 minutes or until sauce is reduced and thick (sauce should bubble slightly as it’s cooking.)
When sauce is thick, remove from heat and stir in whiskey. Return to heat for a couple of minutes, stirring constantly.
Pour into a container and refrigerate until completely chilled. Stir before serving
