My aunt makes a pecan bourbon pie with chocolate chips. Outstanding.
I was once in a small town somewhere in Iowa working and we went to a diner that had a pecan bourbon chocolate pie that was perhaps the very best thing I have ever ate. I don't remember the town...somewhere in southeast or east central Iowa.
Every year on the day before Thanksgiving I bake 8-10 pies (pecan x 3, pumpkin x 2, mincemeat, apple, peach or cherry, chocolate silk and cheescake. I have to bake 3 pecan pies because one inevitably disappears that night, especially if one or more of my kids arrive that day with their families.
I have two question for you:
1. Do you use lard for your shortening?
2. If the answer is yes to question #1, are you looking to adopt or at least on the day of Thanksgiving?
