If those four words don’t make your mouth water, you should probably check your pulse. As my Christmas gift to you, here is my favorite all-purpose Holiday Pie that never fails to impress. Merry Christmas, and may it be delicious!


Bourbon Butterscotch Pecan Pie

3 T butter, melted
¼ tsp. salt
¼ tsp. cinnamon
1 cup light corn syrup
3 T bourbon whiskey
1 T vanilla extract
1 T flour
¾ cup brown sugar
4 large eggs
1 cup pecan pieces or halves
2/3 cup butterscotch chips
1 deep dish pie shell

Preheat oven to 325◦. Melt butter in a mixing bowl. Add salt and corn syrup. Mix well. Add bourbon, vanilla, cinnamon, and flour. Stir. Add sugar, and mix well. Add eggs one at a time, and mix well after each. Poke your thawed pie shell with a fork in many places to prevent bubbling. Place pecans and butterscotch chips on the bottom of the pie shell and pour batter over them. (Have the pie shell on a cookie sheet to contain any spills and for ease of getting into/out of the oven.) Bake for 1 hour or until set. It’s a good idea to cover the crust edges with foil to prevent over-browning. Enjoy!
