Bourbon Pecan Pie

November 25, 2008

It’s a good thing.

I thought I’d get Maker’s Mark since I’ve heard such good things about it.  Turns out?  I like it.  Um, and it should taste good in the pie too…  There’s a pumpkin pie in the oven and an apple pie to make tomorrow.

Sue me.  I like pie.

Update….

Now we also have pumpkin pie.   Doesn’t the beauty of the crust take your breath away?   Cooking is a little like gambling.   Sometimes it all works great and there is much rejoicing.  Sometimes it doesn’t.   The longer I cook the less of a gamble it is but I still hope that the results turn out as lovely as these.   🙂  Not bragging.   I’d invite you all over for pie and coffee if I thought you’d show up.   Well, I’d invite some of you.  I don’t like everyone.  Just my favorites.

  • Is that homemade crust? That rocks. I am too afraid to even attempt homemade crust. Bawk bawk.

    That is a great looking pie.

    Makers Mark? You’ve been reading to much Nate.

    But I will admit, I am far from being an expert on Whiskey.

  • Well, who else would recommend bourbon whisky? 🙂 I’m just so excited to EAT PIE! And Heidi, homemade crust is not all that hard. Read: I use a food processor for the hard stuff…

    You spending the day with Brian’s parents?

    We’re actually not doing Thanksgiving until Saturday since Gwen’s siblings can’t come into town until then.

    Enjoy!

  • Yes, we are gonna be with the folks for the day. My biggest entertainment plan is a movie after dinner followed promptly by very good coffee and pie.
