Maple Bourbon Custard Pie needs to make an appearance on your Thanksgiving table. Creamy custard with maple syrup, bourbon, and spices.
8 days until my favorite holiday!
Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. I love everything about it. It’s about being together with your friends and family. Good food. No pressure. No gifts. It’s a chill sort of day at our house and even though it takes some effort to make it happen, it makes me happy.
I love the planning, the prep, and all the time in the kitchen. (Thankfully once the food hits the table, my kitchen obligations are over. – i.e. I’m not on clean up duty.) I love all of it.
We have a lot to be thankful for. It’s nice to acknowledge and celebrate it.
I made this Maple Bourbon Custard Pie for Go Bold For Butter a few weeks ago and have made it 3 times since then. I love everything about this pie. (Which is funny because I didn’t think I would like it at all. When I think of custard, I think of creamy jello. This pie is not that.)
Freshly grated nutmeg is one of my favorite smells, and I like to grate just a little bit over the top when I serve it. I like the way that it looks, but as the pie comes close to your mouth, it just smells warm and comforting.
This pie is fairly low maintenance as far as pies go, just mixing some ingredients, no peeling or anything. When I make pie crust, I typically make 4 at a time. I keep them in my freezer until I need one. It’s nice to be able to have a pie in the oven whenever I want.
This pie does need some time to set, so be sure to make it the day before or early in the morning the day you are going to eat it.
