The Maker's Mark "Keep you busy while you recover from knee surgery" package rocked the house.

I was pretty surprised when I signed for the UPS package.  I know from experience that when the delivery man needs a signature it's either a foreclosure notice OR alcohol.

Thank God it was the latter.

When I opened the box, this is what I found!!!

Now THAT is some cool stuff!    After a fun on-line session of #BoozyBaking with some amazing ladies, some of the lucky recipients of the care package were challenged to come with a recipe for Maker's Mark.  "Piece of pie," I thought to myself,  "What's more delicious with Maker's Mark than pecan pie??"

So here's what I spent the other day working on.  I hope you enjoy the delicious pie as much as we did here at the house of Whiskey.  (Formerly known as the House of Vodka!) 

This is called  Grandma Miles Maker's Mark Pecan Pie. 

Ingredients??  Well, here they are: 

For the dough (crust for TWO pies....) 

2 cups All Purpose Flour
1/8 t of salt
2/3 c of COLD butter
4-5 T of COL water

For the Filling! (One pie) 
5 tablespoons of unsalted butter
3 eggs
1 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
1 c of light corn syrup
1/2 teaspoon of fine salt
2 cups of toasted chopped pecans (toast on a sprayed cookie sheet for about 8 minutes.) 
2 teaspoons of vanilla
2 tablespoons of Maker's Mark 

First, fix yourself a delicious shot of Maker's Mark.  Throw it down and then put on your apron.   

Then, make the Pie dough with these ingredients.   Mix together 2 cups of All Purpose Flour and 1/8 teaspoon of salt.  Then, in a pastry blender cut in 2/3 c of cold butter.  When it resembles little pebbles, add 4-5 tablespoons of water in small amounts until it is moistened.  

Cut the dough into two parts and form into balls.  Chill the dough for at least an hour.  Then, roll out one of the balls of dough gently onto a floured surface until it's large enough to cover your pie tin.  Then, transfer it into the tin and flute the edges.  Prick the crust with a fork so it won't bubble when baking. Then, give the crust a quick brush with some maker's mark. 

Bake the crust at 475 for about 8 minutes.  Remove. 

For the filling:  In a saucepan combine 5 tablespoons of unsalted butter, 1 cup of firmly packed light brown sugar, 1/2 teaspoon of salt and 3/4 cup of light corn syrup.   When this comes to a boil and is mixed together, take off the heat.  Add to this 2 cups of roasted, chopped pecans, 2 Tablespoons of Maker's Mark, 2 teaspoons of vanilla.  Then, add three large beaten eggs to the mixture.    Cool slightly and pour into the pie shell.  Cover the edges of the pie with foil so they won't burn. 

Bake on the lower rack of the oven at 350 degrees for 50 minutes, or until the pie is set. 

While waiting for the pie to cook, pour yourself another shot of Maker's mark and relax.    YAY Maker's Mark!!!
