Traditional Pecan Pie with Bourbon-flavored Whipped Cream for Thanksgiving!

mansibshah's picture
Original recipe published at Traditional south-western Pecan Pie served with Bourbon-laced whip cream on the side. The gooey pie interior is flavored with Amaretto liquer and vanilla and blends well with the Chopped Pecans that form the pie topping. A must-have thanksgiving dessert!
  Eggs 3
  Bourbon flavored whipped cream 2 Tablespoon (Bourbon Flavored - For the Pecan Pie)
  Dark corn syrup 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Sugar 3⁄4 Cup (12 tbs)
  Sifted all purpose flour 2 Tablespoon
  Vanilla extract 1 Teaspoon
  Amaretto liquer 2 Tablespoon
  Chopped pecans 1 1⁄2 Cup (24 tbs), garnish
  Unbaked 9 inch deep dish pie shell 1
  Heavy cream 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Confectioner' s sugar 2 Tablespoon
  Bourbon 1 Tablespoon

For the Pie
In a medium-sized bowl, stir together the eggs, corn syrup, sugar, flour, amaretto liquer and vanilla until well blended. Just mix, do not beat a lot. Stir in some chopped pecans. Pour the mixture into the pie shell. Layer the top with the remaining halved pecans; you can even form patterns with the nuts if you like. Bake in a pre-heated oven at 350 degree F for 50 to 55 mins, until a knife inserted half-way between center and edge comes out clean. Remember that the pecan pie will always be a little sticky right in the middle because of the corn syrup. Once done, let it cool completely on the wire rack before slicing it.

For the Bourbon-Whipped Cream
Beat or whisk the cream, sugar, and bourbon until soft peaks form and set aside.

Slice the pie once it cools down to room temperature. Then transfer a slice to a serving dish and garnish with chocolate sauce if desired and a lavish dollop of Bourbon-flavored Whipped Cream on the side!

Tip: You can even add chocolate chips into the mixture if you like to make Chocolate-Pecan Pie. Amaretto and Bourbon in the whipped cream do add a nice touch to the holiday mood, but you can do the pie without them too if you wish.
