Bourbon Pumpkin Pie
with PECAN STREUSEL
🍁 When I think of Autumn baking, I think of American classics that are celebrated during ‘Fall’, but especially during Thanksgiving festivities. Although it is true that we don’t have Thanksgiving here in Italy, or in Australia where I grew up, I don’t feel we should be missing out on so many wonderful recipes, sweet and savoury! Some of the first things that come to mind when I say goodbye to Summer and welcome Autumn with open arms are pumpkin, pecans, walnuts and warm spice such as cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and cloves. 🍁
🍁🍁🍁 This year I have taken a classic and welcomed a twist. It’s the first time I’ve added Bourbon to Pumpkin Pie, but after discussing recipes with many Americans on my food tours, they all seem to rave about this addition. I love a streusel added to anything so a Pecan streusel seemed to me the perfect partner to the Pumpkin Pie. 🍁 You can definitely taste the Bourbon, and I was surprised how dominant it is actually. I like it but if you are worried about this, then I suggest adding a little less than what is written in the recipe. 🍁🍁🍁
Leftover pastry was used to make decorations that were placed on pie once it had been baked.
