Kentucky Bourbon Pecan Raisin Pie

Adapted by StarChefs.com
"My mother, Shelby, instilled in me the importance of sitting down and eating together as a family. In good times and bad times, we always sat down together for meals. Most importantly, my mother taught me that food is love. I remember fondly my mother's Kentucky Bourbon Pecan Raisin Pie, and my mother's favorite food is chicken, so I would probably prepare Chicken Under a Brick for a Mother's Day Dinner."

INGREDIENTS:

1 pie shell
1/4 cup butter
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
3 eggs
1/2 cup cane syrup
1 cup halved pecans
1/4 cup bourbon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup raisins

METHOD:

1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees and bake the pie shell partially, (about 5-7 minutes). Allow to cool. Reduce oven heat to 375 degrees.

2. Cream butter and brown sugar. Beat in eggs one at a time. Stir in remaining ingredients and fill pie shell. Bake the pie about 40 minutes or until a knife inserted in the filling comes out clean. Serve warm or cold.
