Bourbon Apple Pie


Bourbon Apple Pie

Sugar and spice and ... a little bit naughty. But oh sooo fun. No bourbon in the house, but I do have a fifth of Jack Daniels in the cupboard (next to the oven cleaner) for when my mother comes to visit. Last night I sauteed apples with some sugar and spices, poured in some Jack and popped it in a pie crust and it was awesome. This pie is more on the savory than sweet side, so a dollop of vanilla ice cream or whipped cream balances the flavors nicely.
