Thank You, Internet...

And Paula Deen.

Bourbon Pecan Pie: aka Douglas' Dark Rum Pecan Pie
1 cup sugar
3 tablespoons butter, melted
1/2 cup dark corn syrup
3 large eggs, beaten
1 1/2 to 2 cups pecan halves
2 tablespoons good-quality bourbon
1 (9-inch) deep-dish pie shell, unbaked

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
In a medium bowl, stir together the sugar and melted butter. Add the corn syrup, eggs, pecans, and bourbon, and stir until all ingredients are combined. Pour mixture into an unbaked pie shell, and place on a heavy-duty cookie sheet. Bake for 10 minutes. Lower the oven temperature to 350 degrees F, and continue to bake for an additional 25 minutes, or until pie is set. Remove from oven and cool on a wire rack.

Only problem - I don't have dark corn syrup, just light. Once again, the information can be found on the internet:

For 1 cup dark syrup substitute 1 cup light corn syrup OR1 1/4 cups packed brown sugar + 3 to 4 tbsp water

Also, no "Good Quality" Burbon. I'm sure I can find something in the cabinet to substitute. Southern Comfort?
