When it comes to Thanksgiving pies, I tend to stick to two camps; apple and pecan.
I’ve never met a pecan pie that I didn’t like…and I’m quite certain there’s never been a pecan pie that didn’t like me.
This particular one is loaded with the family bourbon. Consider it the perfect dessert and nightcap in one.
I’m no stranger to pouring bourbon in my desserts. Earlier this year, I spiked ice cream and bread pudding with the good stuff and it came out heavenly; bourbon, boozy, heavenly.
In fact, if you really wanted to go over the top, serve this pie with a scoop of bourbon ice cream. Now there’s an idea!
It’s quite possible that this pie will also help ease the stress/anxiety of large family gatherings, drama, and differing opinions that are often associated with the holidays.
Drink Eat up!
Come back next Monday for an homage to the apple dessert!
