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.
