    2 tsp. Hy-Vee unsalted butter, melted
    ¼ tsp. Hy-Vee vanilla extract

    ¼ c. cold Hy-Vee heavy whipping cream

    Things To Grab

    • 2 small bowls
    • Plastic wrap
    • Whisk
    • Medium bowl
    • Pie plate or ramekin
    • Kitchen scissors
    • Wire rack
    • Electric mixer


    1. For pastry, whisk together 1/2 cup flour and salt in small bowl. Cut in shortening by using a fork until coarse crumbs form. Drizzle with 1 tablespoon ice water; stir with fork. Add additional water, 1 tsp. at a time, just until dough holds together. Wrap in plastic wrap. Freeze while preparing filling or refrigerate for 30 minutes or up to 2 days.

    2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. For filling, whisk together brown sugar, corn syrup, egg, melted butter, and vanilla in a medium bowl. Chop 1/2 cup pecans. Stir chopped pecans and, if desired, bourbon into brown sugar mixture.

    3. Roll out pastry dough on a lightly floured surface into a 7-inch round. Line a 4-inch-round pie plate or ramekin with pastry. Trim and flute edges as desired. Pour filling mixture into pastry-lined pie plate. Arrange remaining 1/4 cup pecan halves on top; gently press into filling with the back of a spoon.

    4. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes or until filling is set and reaches 200 degrees. Cool completely on wire rack.

    5. For topping, beat cream, powdered sugar, 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon and, if desired, bourbon or vanilla in a deep small bowl with electric hand mixer on medium until stiff peaks form. Spoon on top of pie; garnish with additional ground cinnamon, if desired.
