Spirited Brown Sugar Pecan Pie

This recipe was requested from the "what's baking" thread. Unlike the traditional Pecan Pie it uses brown sugar instead of corn syrup which results in a richer and denser texture.

The "spirit" is
1 tablespoon of spiced rum (Captain Morgan) or any rum will do.
4 eggs, slightly beaten
2 cups brown sugar,
1/4 cup butter, melted
1/4 tsp cinnamon
2 cups of pecan halves, arranged in the bottom of the crust.

In a large bowl, combine ingredients and pour into an unbaked 9" crust.
Bake till filling is set, 350 degrees for aprox. 40-45 min.
Use a foil strip to protect crust edges if it browns too quickly.


Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but rather by the moments that take our breath away.

Thanks, Kayelle. Sounds really good and easy, too! As for freezing extras, that's not a sure-fire way to discourage ies. In times of weakness, just a few minutes on the counter.......

But what will I ever do with the rest of the Capt. Morgan's??
No matter how simple it seems, it's complicated.
