Bourbon Chocolate Pecan Pie

My mother-in-law always prepares a pecan pie for Christmas dinner dessert. My husband and I decided to step out of the classic pecan pie box, and we tried this recipe for Bourbon Chocolate Pecan Pie for Thanksgiving which was a huge hit. Start by using a frozen pie crust. I used a regular size, but a deep-dish would work well too. Brush the edges with cream to give the crust a golden color. If you only have eggs on hand, that works too. Beat the eggs slightly and brush around the edges of the crust to give a glossy crust color. If you want to omit the bourbon, you may, but it gives it an extra southern bold flavor. You may want to make two pies while you’re at it because one goes fast! Enjoy this holiday season and year round or give as a holiday gift!

New Thanksgiving, Christmas or Holiday Family Dessert: Chocolate Chip Pie

I was asked by the family this year to make something “chocolate” for dessert in addition to our Pumpkin Pie, Pecan Pie-I know, enough is enough. My good friend Sheila, who works for Favorite Recipes Press, gave me the book “Recipes Worth Sharing” last week. I found this recipe for Chocolate Chip Pie, and I had to try it. It’s so easy, and my daughter, Leigh, helped me make it in no time. We will be indulging in it on Thanksgiving, but it is wonderful anytime of the year (the kids love it!). Happy Thanksgiving to all my blog fans, family and dear close friends. You all know who you are!
