2.  Bourbon Pumpkin Pie

Total Time: 1 hour 15 minutes
Servings: 12

Crust Ingredients:
1 cup all-purpose flour
¼ cup sugar
¼ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon olive oil
½ cup unsalted butter, cubed and softened
1 egg yolk, beaten
¼ teaspoon vanilla

Filling Ingredients:
½ cup heavy cream
6oz sweetened condensed milk
¾ cup dark brown sugar
2 eggs, beaten
½ teaspoon salt
1 can pumpkin pureé (15oz)
3 Tablespoons Bourbon
1 teaspoon cinnamon

Crust Directions:
1. Preheat the oven to 400°F.
2. In a medium bowl, combine the flour, salt and sugar. Add in the cubed
butter and mix in the egg yolk, olive oil, and vanilla. The mixture should
be thick and crumbly. Divide the mixture into three balls of dough.
3. Butter the bottom and sides of a 9-inch springform pan. With the sides
removed, spread one of the balls of dough so that it covers the bottom of
the pan. Pat the dough gently to even it out. Bake the bottom for 7
minutes, until golden. Attach the sides of the pan. Spread the remaining
two balls of dough along its sides.

Filling Directions:
1. Preheat the oven to 400°F.
2. In a large bowl, mix together the brown sugar, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg,
and ground ginger. Gradually whisk in the eggs, heavy cream, condensed
milk, pumpkin pureé, and bourbon. Once this mixture is thoroughly
combined, pour it into the crust.
3. Bake the pie for 50-55 minutes, until the filling is firm. Let cool.
4. Serve with whipped cream, if desired.
