Once again, I have trolled both the internet and Chowhound, and I'm at a loss. I'm a pecan pie purist. In my opinion, the only "different" thing that goes in pecan pie should be bourbon. Not chocolate, or anything like that.
However, I've got problems. I want to make a pecan pie with only *dark brown* sugar, not white sugar. Steen's cane syrup, not corn syrup, and I want to add bourbon. I can't seem to find a recipe that I can alter without possibly changing the consistency: and consistency is key if you don't want pecan pie guts everywhere when you cut into it.
I once had a decent recipe, but I'll be darned if I can find it, and I seem to remember that the final product was a little gooshy anyway. Please help? My husband's and my first Thanksgiving at home depends upon it! :D
