Bourban Pecan Pumpkin Butter Pie
2 cups (about 1 1/3 jars) pecan pumpkin butter (Us the recipe that follows or you can get this at Williams Sonoma)
1 3/4 cups plus 1 Tbs. evaporated milk
3 Tbs. bourbon
1 prebaked and cooled deep-dish piecrust (see related recipe at left)
Whipped cream for serving
Position a rack in the lower third of an oven. Place a cookie sheet on the rack. Preheat the oven to 325°F. (The pie dish will sit on the cookie sheet, which will help the bottom of the crust to brown.)
In a large bowl, gently whisk the eggs. Add the pecan pumpkin butter, evaporated milk and bourbon and whisk until well combined. Pour the filling into the prebaked piecrust and bake until the center of the pie is just set, 1 to 1 1/4 hours. Check the crust after 30 minutes; if the edges begin to brown too quickly, cover them with aluminum foil.
Transfer the pie to a wire rack and let cool for at least 4 hours before serving. If making in advance, cover the cooled pie with plastic wrap and refrigerate up to overnight.
To serve, cut the pie into slices and serve with whipped cream. Serves 8 to 10.
