Pumpkin, cranberry, apple, sweet potato – these ingredients are responsible for most of the Thanksgiving desserts. But we can’t forget about delicious Pecans as well! That’s why we had to include this wonderful Homemade Pecan Pie with Bourbon, which will become a true hit in many households.

The rich and buttery crust serves as the perfect base for the rest of the pie. Then comes the irresistible pecan filling, which you can make from roasted pecans, brown sugar, cornstarch, egg yolks, cream, butter, salt, bourbon, and dark maple syrup or dark corn syrup.

Also, the top of the pie should be decorated with pecan halves to add a polished look. You may serve the pie with some whipped cream or add a scoop of ice cream. Or both!
