Maple Pecan Pie with Bourbon & Bacon

I meant to post this recipe a long time ago, but never did.  I found out today that it is National Pie Day, so it would make a perfect choice to post a pie recipe today.

This recipe includes some favorite ingredients.  First being Maple Syrup.  I use a grade ‘B’ syrup because I think it has so much more maple flavor than a grade ‘A’ syrup.  Second, Bourbon.  Use your favorite brand here, I am not a connoisseur of the ‘aperitif’ so I cannot make a recommendation, I just like the flavor.  Then third, bacon.  Most everyone’s favorite food, once again use your favorite brand or buy locally from your favorite meat market.  Enjoy!!!
