  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C). Roll out the pie crust and fit it into a 9-inch pie dish. Crimp the edges and prick the bottom with a fork. Chill the crust in the refrigerator while you prepare the filling.

  2. In a medium saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Cook the butter until it starts to turn golden brown and smells nutty, about 5 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat and let it cool slightly.

  3. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the granulated sugar, brown sugar, corn syrup, eggs, bourbon, vanilla extract, and salt until smooth. Slowly pour in the brown butter, whisking constantly, until the mixture is well combined.

  4. Stir in the pecans and pour the filling into the prepared pie crust.

  5. Bake the pie for 45-50 minutes, or until the filling is set and the crust is golden brown. If the edges of the crust start to brown too quickly, cover them with aluminum foil.

  6. Let the pie cool completely on a wire rack, then chill in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours before serving.
