Pie Time (Options!)

For several Thanksgivings, I made The Pioneer Woman’s Pecan Pie.  It was good, and everyone throughout the land rejoiced.

Or so I thought (the rejoicing).  At least one inhabitant of the land was scheming.  Last year, Scott decided that he could make the pecan pie better, and I am never going to stop anyone from pie experiments.  Never.

It turns out that our perfect pecan pie is Tyler Florence’s Bourbon and Chocolate Pecan Pie crust (filled with nutty goodness) and Eat, Live, Run’s Bourbon Chocolate Pecan Pie filling (with less chocolate than called for).  Don’t ask me why Tyler Florence’s filling isn’t good enough for Scott.  That’s his call, and I don’t question things that end deliciously.

So feeling fancy this Thanksgiving?  Try Scott’s Super Fancy Pie Crust and Filling.

Feeling classic?  Ree has you covered.

And in summary, you can’t go wrong with pecan pie.  Also, going to the grocery store to buy pie ingredients and frozen pizza (what I will be eating for the next 2 days) is way more fun than buying an entire week’s worth of make-it-from-scratch dinner ingredients.
