Derby Pie

A dessert associated with the Kentucky Derby — include pecans, chocolate and bourbon.
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup dark corn syrup
2-1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into cubes
1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1-1/2 teaspoons bourbon
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 large eggs
Nonstick cooking spray
1 (9-inch) refrigerated pie crust
1 cup pecan pieces
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
Add the sugar and corn syrup to a saucepan over medium heat and stir until the sugar has melted.
Remove from heat and set aside.
To the corn syrup mixture, add the butter and allow it to melt. Stir it slowly so that the mixture doesn’t froth.
Carefully stir in the bourbon, vanilla and salt.
In a medium bowl, whisk the eggs. To the eggs, slowly and gradually add the corn syrup mixture, whisking until all is incorporated.
Lightly coat the pie pan with the nonstick cooking spray.
Unfold the pie dough and press it into pan. Crimp the edges with your fingers.
Place the pie pan on a baking sheet.
Add the pecans to the pie shell and pour the filling on top.
Bake the pie until it turns a golden brown and becomes firm, about 45 minutes.
Cool completely on a rack.
