A twist on classic pecan pie, this tart has an easy pat-in crust and is lip-smackingly good with or without the bourbon. Serve with whipped cream.

  • Portion size 12 servings

Ingredients

  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup corn syrup
  • 1/4 cup bourbon or rye whisky
  • 2 tablespoons butter melted
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1 1/2 cup pecan halves
  • 2 tablespoons corn syrup warmed
Pat-in Pastry:
  • 1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup cold butter
  • 2 tablespoons cold water
  • 1 teaspoon white vinegar

Method

Pat-In Pastry: In food processor, mix together flour, sugar and salt. Add butter; using on-off motion, pulse until in fine crumbs. Add water and vinegar; pulse 2 or 3 times or until blended but still crumbly. Squeeze together in small handfuls and pat evenly over bottom and up side of 9-inch (23 cm) tart pan with removable bottom, pressing firmly. Refrigerate for 15 minutes. (Make-ahead: Cover and refrigerate for up to 24 hours.)

In bowl, whisk together eggs, brown sugar, corn syrup, bourbon, butter, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and allspice; stir in pecans. Scrape filling into prepared tart shell. Bake in bottom third of 375°F (190°C) oven, shielding edge with foil if browning too much, until pastry is golden and filling is just firm to the touch, about 45 minutes. Brush filling with corn syrup; let cool. (Make-ahead: Cover with foil and let stand at room temperature for up to 1 day.) Cut with serrated knife.
