Recipe: Wild Turkey Flaming Pecan Pumpkin Pie

Wild Turkey Flaming Pecan Pumpkin Pie

Serves 6

Pie

Ingredients

  • 3 eggs, slightly beaten
  • 16 ounces canned pumpkin
  • 3/4 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups half-and-half
  • 3 tablespoons Wild Turkey 101
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 unbaked 9-inch pie crust

Combine the eggs, pumpkin, brown sugar, half-and-half, bourbon, cinnamon, ginger and salt; mix well. Pour the pumpkin mixture into the pie crust and bake for 10 minutes. Reduce the heat to 350 F and allow the pie to continue to bake for 45 minutes or until the filling is set in the middle. Remove the pie from the oven and let it cool.

Topping

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup Wild Turkey 101
  • 1 cup pecan halves

Combine the butter and brown sugar in a saucepan; stir and cook over medium heat until the butter melts, the sugar dissolves and the two ingredients are mixed. Add 2 tablespoons of Wild Turkey and the pecans. Coat the pecans with the sugar. Spoon the pecan mixture over the pie.

Before serving the pie, place the other 2 tablespoons of Wild Turkey in a saucepan and gently heat until the fumes are ready to ignite. Carefully ignite the Wild Turkey with a match and pour it over the pie. When the flames die down, the pie is ready to serve.
