This Texas classic gets an upgrade with a shot of our favorite nightcap: cinnamon whiskey. A traditional recipe through and through, this pecan pie uses light corn syrup for its thickening base, though you can certainly use a combination of light and dark to get the rich, caramel color of pies of the past.
Whether you're whipping this up instead of a birthday gift for a loved one, or cranking out five of these babies for your holiday dinner, you'll be amazed at how quickly it comes together.
If you buy pre-chopped pecans, your prep time is truly less than 10 minutes. From there, your oven does the rest for 45 minutes to an hour. It's completely worth it.
