Bourbon Pumpkin Pie

I love bringing a taste of the south to my recipes. Many, many years ago I found a Bourbon Pumpkin Pie recipe on a website that doesn’t appear to still exist.  Since I found it, I’ve made it many times over the years, of course with my own touches and tweaks.  I couldn’t believe with all the times I’ve made this pie, that I haven’t shared my version of the recipe with you. So I’m changing that immediately.

How to make Bourbon Pumpkin Pie

It’s SO easy! Like ridiculously easy.  Here’s what you do: pour all the ingredients in a bowl, whisk them together, pour the mixture into a pie crust, and bake.

Common Questions

What’s the difference between pumpkin and pumpkin pie filling?

Pumpkin pie filling is basically all the pie filling ingredients already mixed together! We are making our own pumpkin pie filling, so you want to be sure to use pure pumpkin and not pumpkin pie filling.

How do you tell if pumpkin pie is done?

Pumpkin pie is done when it’s just slightly jiggly in the center, but otherwise mostly set. If it’s too jiggly, it’s underdone so let it keep going! It’s better for it to be a little bit over-baked than a little bit under-baked.

There is really no reason to not make this pie all fall long. It takes no time at all, and the result is a huge hit with everyone who’s tried it! Take the stress out of your Thanksgiving baking, and impress your friends all fall long by sharing this deliciousness with everyone you know!
