Recipe: Wild Turkey Flaming Pecan Pumpkin Pie

Wild Turkey Flaming Pecan Pumpkin Pie

Serves 6



  • 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.



  • 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.
