    .Soak raisens over night in bourbon drain and save 1/4 cup bourbon for pie ,mix 2 drinks with the other 1/4 cup :) , PreHeat oven to 375 F, Combine eggs, sugar, butter, syrup, vanilla and 1/4 cup bourbon . Mix well . Sprinkle raisens over the bottom of the unbaked pie crust; cover with pecans. Pour filling over raisens and pecans. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until a knife inserted halfway between the center and the edge comes out clean. Set aside for at least 30 minutes before cutting. Makes 6 to 8 servings. French Vanilla Cool-Whip tops this pie very well

    that sounds good, although since I don't care for rasins I'd omit them and keep the burbon to 1/4 cup. What brand of burbon do you use for yours?

    Well I've tried several brands and I found out the cheap stuff Old Crow worked best, if your going to ommit the raisens then I'd soak the pecans in the bourbon.

    Yes it's kid safe , my boys love it , any alcohol in the pie will be cooked out only the bourbon flavor will be left, this is really a very old converted pecan pie recipe crossed with a Kentucky Bourbon Pie aka Kentucky Derby Pie.
    The longer you let the raisens soak in the bourbon the stronger the bourbon flavor.I let mine soak over night cause , well I Love Bourbon LOL
