Bourbon Apple Pie
Recipe adapted from page 223, Liz Reiter’s All-Granny Slug-O-Bourbon Spiced Apple Pie, of this book: Author: Ken Haedrich. I actually added a Golden Delicious apple and a spare pear because I didn’t think I had enough filling. I made this two years ago at this same time. It’s hub’s favorite.
I had to google for quotes about ‘birthday pie’; allow me to share:
A new novel called Birthday Pie by Arthur Wooten is out this year and funny enough, the word ‘bourbon’ is on the cover… I’m putting it on my to-be-read list despite the fact that the only rating, a 5 star, is from the author.
and this from comedian Jim Gaffigan:
“Pie can’t compete with cake. Put candles in a cake, it’s a birthday cake. Put candles in a pie, and somebody’s drunk in the kitchen.”
