Bourbon Pecan Pie

Before I met Bruce, I had never tasted bourbon pecan pie. As a matter of fact, I had never had pecan pie at all. In light of Bruce growing up in Kentucky, ya know bourbon would come into play! Ordinarily I am not a huge bourbon fan, but there is something magical about bourbon and pecans in this golden mixture of goodness!

This season, we are collaborating with Pearson Farm and have been showcasing their freshly picked pecans in so many recipes!
