Crowned Royal Pecan


Filling 1:

Filling 2:

Filling 3:

For Crust:
In medium bowl, combine flour and salt. Using pastry blender cut in the Crisco until particles are size of small peas. Sprinkle flour mixture with water, 1 tablespoon at a time, with a fork. Add water until dough is just moist enough to hold together.

For Filling:

In a large mixing bowl lightly beat the eggs until they are slightly frothy. Stir in both of the corn syrups, sugar, butter, and vanilla. Mix well and add the Crown Royal and the pecan halves. Pour filling into a prepared unbaked pie shell, cover the edge of crust with foil or edge cover. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Bake the pie for 25 minutes and remove the foil or edge cover. Continue to bake for 20-25 minutes, or until a knife is inserted close to the center comes out clean. Cool the pie completely and refrigerate until ready to serve.
