Bourbon Pumpkin Pie

We’re right in the midst of the chaos that is the holiday season! It is such a fun time of year, but I always feel like I’m falling behind on everything! Which is why I am here, in December, after you’re probably all burnt out on pumpkin pie, to bring you a brand new pumpkin pie recipe!  Now I know it’s more of a Thanksgiving dessert, but today is a very special occasion for which this recipe would be perfect…not that Pie Thursday wouldn’t be a winning idea!

I don’t understand why people want to eat foods that cause physical pain.  But recently I discovered that often those spicy foods also have a really delicious flavor. I decided I needed to build my tolerance to spice because I am missing out on so many amazing foods and flavors by avoiding it.
