"Thanksgiving in July" Bourbon, Ginger & Pecan Pie
Tell us about your proudest moment — or humble failure — in this week’s baking challenge.
It was deliciously confusing having the smells of Thanksgiving all around my kitchen on a sunny July afternoon! I make this every Thanksgiving as I’m not a fan of pumpkin pie. The bourbon & ginger really elevate this pie, and using maple syrup adds another tasty twist. Nearly all of the pie was gone before I remembered to take a photo.
