Bourbon Chocolate Pecan Pie

There’s been a lot going on for the last few weeks in the world. For my part, and many not so far away from me, a lot of the busyness has been dealing with the aftermath of hurricane Sandy. In my neighborhood, we got lucky. Really lucky. My boyfriend only had to help his grandparents with some flooding.

Other parts were not so lucky and many are still displaced from their homes and in need of a helping hand. I have teamed up with several other great bloggers across the internet to help bring more awareness and maybe even some donations to the Red Cross with out posts and #WeCare. We are encouraging other bloggers to grab our button and with us and support in any way they can.

We decided we should feature recipes that were comforting and down home. Well, that is kind of my thing, and since I already had this pie planned (Pie month!), it was an easy fit.  Personally, I may have added just a bit more chocolate than called for just to make it that much more ‘comforting’. 😉


I tested out a suggestion from one of my readers to add vodka to the crust. Really, you don’t need to twist my arm to get my to add liquor to anything. Since I am so new to pie dough, I can’t say for certain that it added any extra umphf to the crust, however, this thick and pretty gooey pie did keep a firm and flaky crust for 4 days. There were no pecan halves in my market when I went (there wasn’t much of anything as it was the night before Sandy hit – but who would have thought pecan halves would go?), so I made due with chopped pecans. Other then ascetics, it doesn’t make one bit of difference as I could tell.

If you are not one for fruit pies, this would be a great addition to your Thanksgiving or holiday menus.

it when he wasnt even dating her. I just want the sweet and carnig..who can be a bad a$$ if he wanted to..get the girl! Having lucas and Kylie end up together is just common something that almost all stories seem to have the the bad boy/wolf gets the girl boring!! Derek deserves kylie because he accepts her for what she is..and when he volunteered to be her shadow and she asked why ..he said it was becasue he rather hurt around her and know she is safe then knowing she could be in danger oh sweet is that! Plus most of the time it seems like Kylie would want to be a werewolf and lucas wants her to be one..thats not fair to make Kylie something she doesnt want to be! Also, Derek was the one who saved her first from the lion and later at the zoo..somehow people who are roooting for Lucas seems to forget the Derek saved her life first. Lastly just because two people have history like lucas and Kylie doesnt mean they should end up wasn't even a long history they just knew each other when they were little for a small amount of time! Also, for those who say why you would want to be with someone who reminds you of your ex Kylie only mentioned that at the beginnning in the first book about Derek..after that she never mentions it again! So really that can't be an excuse on why she shouldnt be with Derek because she thinks he hotter and better than her ex and she stopped saying he reminded her of her ex! Anyway I'll shut up now but Derek and Kylie would be amazing together and they should be given that chance!TEAM DEREK <3
