Holiday pecan pie!

This is one of the pies we served at Thanksgiving - the flavors were so good and it smelled
amazing warm from the oven.  Enjoy with a cup of coffee!

Bourbon and Orange Pecan Pie
(from Real Simple magazine, Nov. 2009)

1 ready-made piecrust
1 c. light corn syrup
1/4 c. light brown sugar
1/2 stick unsalted butter, melted and cooled a bit
3 eggs
2 T bourbon (or use 1 t. vanilla extract)
1/2 grated orange zest
1/2 t. salt
2 c. pecan halves

Pre-heat the oven to 350 after setting the oven rack to the lowest position.  
Place pie crust in butter pie plate and crimp along the edges.
Whisk together corn syrup, sugar. butter, eggs, bourbon, orange zest, and salt.
Stir in the pecans
and pour into the crust.
Scape the bowl with a spatula to get all of the goo!
Bake 50-55 minutes and let cool before slicing and serving.
Admire your pie before everyone digs in! 
You can even pose with it and show your mom your beautiful smile.  (:
