Bourbon Orange Pecan Pie, All Seasons Fredericksburg Texas

I had some fantastic guests stay with us this weekend and I happened to walk through the courtyard while they were talking about the pie they had that afternoon. Small world, I started Fredericksburg Pie Company 6 years ago and they were talking about my Bourbon Orange Pecan Pie. It’s the one that put us on the map. I’ve since sold the Pie Company, but they are still using many of the same recipes and I’m always glad to hear someone say they enjoyed it. I thought I would share this recipe.

1 ¼ cup Packed Golden Brown Sugar
1 ¼ cup Light Corn Syrup
¾ Stick Unsalted Butter, melted
4 Large Eggs

1 ¼ tsp Vanilla Extract
¼ tsp Salt
1 ½ cups Pecan Halves

  1. We just came back from Fredericksburg. We went to the Pie Company. They are the best pies ever. We have taken family and friends there!

  2. Great recipe. I will say , however, I am surprised there are actually pies in Fredericksburg that do not include the famous peaches in the recipe. I am honestly, not the best baker in my house so I will be sure to pass this recipe along to the person who is, as pecan pies are my favorite. Does the pie end up having a citrus like taste when complete? I couldn’t imagine so with just the peel being used in the recipe, however, it certainly does sounds interesting.
    Love the recipe, and the blog. My name is Marc, and in addition to my affinity for pecan pies, I also work for Bescover — where we love all things B&B! It’s truly a privilege being a part of your online community.

    • Thanks for the post Marc. The orange zest gives it just the right hint of citrus without it taking over the flavor of the pie. I hope you enjoy it!

  3. We just visited family in Fredericksburg and enjoyed this wonderful pie. I am a pie maker and thought I would look for a recipe on line for this pie. I had no idea I would actually find the recipe from Fredericksburg Pie Company! Thank you so much for posting it on line.

  4. Thank you for sharing this recipe. Several years ago I was traveling through Fredricksburg, I did a search for a quilt shop and the “Pie Company” came up in the search. I stopped by to see about quilting things and decided to buy a piece of pie. I call myself a dessert snob, because I love to bake and have more often than not been disappointed in dessert I have purchased and pay almost as much for a slice than I could have made the whole thing for. Anyway I decided if I were going to spend $4.95 on a slice of pie I was getting one with nuts, since they cost so much. I was going to share the pie with my husband when I met up with him later. He didn’t get any of my pecan pie because it was the best pecan pie I have tasted, and being from the south we have eaten our share of pecan pies. LOL I have been searching for the recipe since then. Now thanks to you I have the recipe.

    • I hope you get many years of enjoyment out of it Sherry. It’s always been a favorite for my family. I cannot show up at a family event without the Bourbon Orange Pecan or Coconut Meringue!
