“This pie is super-easy to make, just mix and bake, it's no-fail recipe and ALWAYS sets just perfectly when baked. You can use chopped pecans in place of walnuts. Use your own favorite pie crust or use my No-Fail Butter Pie Crust Kittencal's No-Fail Buttery Flaky Pie Pastry/Crust. This pie is still good even without the bourbon, but better with it lol!”
