November 16, 2017 — One of my favorite food people is Alton Brown and his cooking show Good Eats. Not only does he show you how to make amazing food but he also explains the science behind the recipe. Now you know why it works and can adjust should you not have all of the ingredients. The first time I made his Bourbon Pecan Pie was for Christmas 2016. I transported it all the way from Miami, Florida to Dallas, Texas where I was spending the holiday at Tanya’s new home with our other friend Mel and her son Chris. Surprisingly it made it through security without any of the TSA agents ‘claiming’ that it was unauthorized so that they could enjoy it for themselves.
It was time for our office Thanksgiving party so I decided to recreate this dish for my coworkers.
Spiced Pecans for the filling and the crust
Crust with the pecans and the first introduction of Bourbon!

Love my Williams-Sonoma Goldtouch Bakeware. Thanks M&T!
I also made one for Christmas 2016 to celebrating T’s new home in Frisco, TX.
