but is this what you're looking for?
And if not, maybe someone will enjoy the recipe anyway.
Here's the source:

Bourbon Pecan Pie
The author says: "Pecans and bourbon are a natural match. Good bourbon has a sweet, rich, mellow flavor that is excellent in many dishes, especially good with sweet potatoes and pecans." --Shirley Corriher

1 cup pecan pieces
2 tablespoons and 4 tablespoons and 3 tablespoons lightly salted butter (9 tablespoons total)
1/8 teaspoon and 1/8 teaspoon and 1/8 teaspoon salt (scant 1/2 teaspoon total)
1 cup and 2 tablespoons light corn syrup (1-1/8 cups total)
3/4 cup and 1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed (1-1/4 cups total)
2 tablespoons arrowroot
2 tablespoons water at room temperature
2 tablespoons bourbon
2 teaspoons and 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract (2-1/2 teaspoons total)
3 large eggs at room temperature
3 large egg yolks at room temperature
1 recipe Orange Crust variation of Pie Crust for Longer Cooking Times, prebaked in a 9-inch shiny or light-colored removable bottom tart pan (see Note)
1-1/3 cups pecan halves

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (177 degrees C).

Roast the pecan pieces on a baking sheet in the center of the oven for 8 minutes only. While the pecans are hot, stir in 2 tablespoons butter and 1/8 teaspoon salt.

Raise the oven temperature to 400 degrees F (204 degrees C).

Boil 1 cup corn syrup, 3/4 cup brown sugar, 4 tablespoons butter, and 1/8 teaspoon salt in a medium size, heavy saucepan on medium heat for 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and let cool for 2 minutes. Stir together the arrowroot and water in a small bowl. Stir in the bourbon and 2 teaspoons vanilla. Stir this mixture well into the hot syrup. Stir the eggs and egg yolks together in a large bowl, then stir the hot syrup in a little at a time. Sprinkle pecan pieces over prebaked crust. Pour the filling over the pecans and bake in the lower third of the oven for 35 minutes. If the crust edge is getting too brown, cover just the edge with foil.

While the pie is baking, stir together and boil 3 tablespoons butter, 1/8 teaspoon salt, 2 tablespoons corn syrup, and 1/2 cup brown sugar in a medium-size, heavy saucepan for 1 minute. Remove from the heat and stir in pecan halves and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla.

Pile or arrange coated pecan halves on top of pie and return to the oven for 10 minutes.

Note: If the tart pan is 1-1/2 inches deep, use a 9-inch pan. If the pan is 1-inch deep, use a 10-inch pan.

Variation: For a plain pecan pie, omit the bourbon.

never tried this particular one... Jan 28, 2004

But over Christmas my sister made bourbon-less pecan pie and it's not difficult.
I can't make it here in Italy because you simply can't buy pecans, and walnuts won't do the trick - too bitter compared to pecans.
If you try it, let me know how it turns out!
