Smithfield Premium Maple Thick Cut Bacon 1/3 cup
Light Brown Sugar 2 Tbsp.
Single layer pie crust 1
Unsalted butter, melted 4 Tbsp.
Whole eggs 3
Dark brown sugar 1 cup
Light corn syrup 3/4 cup
Bourbon 2 Tbsp.
Whole pecan halves 3 cups
Whipped cream as desired


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees
  2. Whisk together the butter, eggs, brown sugar, corn syrup and bourbon.
  3. Chop two cups of the pecans.
  4. With a fork, prick the crust in several places.
  5. Place the chopped pecans in the pie shell and lightly press so that they don’t float up too much after adding the batter.
  6. Cover the chopped pecans with the batter, then arrange the remaining whole pecan halves in concentric circles around the pie, working from the outer edge toward the middle.
  7. Bake the pie for about 40 minutes, or until the filling is just set but still slightly jiggly in the center.
  8. If the pecans or crust are starting to get too brown before the pie is done, cover loosely with foil.
  9. Remove the pie from the oven, sprinkle the candied bacon on top and allow to cool completely at room temperature.
  10. Serve when cooled, top with whipped cream if desired
