"But I would be proud to partake of your pecan pie."


"But I would be proud to partake of your pecan pie." -Harry Burns in When Harry Met Sally

Thanksgiving is just around the corner, and I can't help but have pie on my mind. In the South, we love pecan pie. What better way to celebrate the holiday by surrounding yourself with friends and food. We can't wait to try this praline pecan pie with some of our delicious pralines!



  • pie crust (pre-baked)
  • 8 tablespoons butter (1" pieces)
  • 1/4 cup packed dark brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/4 cup dark corn syrup
  • 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 to 4 tablespoons bourbon (or liquor of your choice)
  • 2 cups crumbled New Orleans Famous Pralines 


Set oven to 275 degrees F. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, cook butter, brown sugar, and salt together until sugar is melted and butter is absorbed, approximately 2 minutes. Remove the butter mixture from the heat source and whisk in the eggs, 1 at a time, until combined. Whisk in the corn syrup, vanilla extract, and bourbon. Return the pan to medium heat and stir constantly until the mixture is glossy and warm to the touch, approximately 4 minutes.

Pour the cooked pie filling mixture into the pie shell. Sprinkle the New Orleans Famous Pralines on top of the filling. Bake approximately 45 to 60 minutes or until the internal temperature registers approximately 200 degrees F. Remember that the pie continues to cook after it is removed from the oven. Do not over bake! The center of the pie should be set but still wobbly; residual heat will finish the job.

Remove from oven and let pie cool completely on a wire rack at least 4 hours. Serve pie at room temperature, accompanied by whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.

Serves 8-10.
