pecan pie kicked up Wed, 11/21/07 7:10 PM (permalink)
I know I'm gonna be alone on the ranch during Christmas as well as New Year. Staying behind to do ranch chores. I'm currently making notes and planning for great selfish menus.I cook pretty good,please myself at least.
Pecan pie, I love it! QUESTION: How do I take a store bought pie and "kick it up" with a bit of whiskey, liquer, etc. for a special dessert??? Hope you are able to help.

    humm,
    I don't know how one would or could add whiskey to a pre-made store pecan pie.
    Maybe try mixing eggnog, whiskey and cool whip for a pie topping. I haven't made this myself, so your own your own if you try it. It has to be goood.

    Push come to shove, eat the pie and chase it with whiskey. If it doesn’t taste right, cut back on the pie.

      Ed, Thanks for your culinary insight, those are creative suggestions! The little woman thought you were on the trail. Please remember she's the one "high tailin" out of town!!!

      Thank you....

        The only thought I had was to scoop the filling out of the pie-which can be done, and mix said ingredients.Then warm in the oven.However, I am thinking edwmax has the best idea....Happy Thanksgiving!

          Ed, this is likely a repeat. However, daughter is attempting to teach me new tricks on this machine. Hope it works. Ann, thanks for your thoughts as well.
          Maybe with arecipe, I could make such a scratch pie.

            Ann's suggestion would work. But I was trying to keep it simple and easy.
            Heck, I think I’ll try the topping myself tomorrow on my mom’s pecan pie.

              Dean,

              I would email you this one I made today but the damn thing won't fit in the scanner!

                I don't know how to apply this to a store bought pecan pie, but my Mom makes a pecan pie spiked with Wild Turkey bourbon and Ghiradelli chocolate that is absolutely awesome.

                  dholk, bring on that Wild Turkey pecan pie recipe courtesy of your Momma!
                  Ed, your topping ideas are very good!
                  Maybe several of us can learn a few tricks here.

                    Cajun King, you are very cruel teasing us with that pie. New Mexico ain't too far out of your way back home. Bring a few slices and I'll furnish the coffee!

                        The publix supermarket by me had pecan pie filling in a jar around Thanksgiving. I found this one online. http://www.greatpecans.com/cooking/pie-in-a-jar.htm. All you have to do is mix it with some eggs and butter(and some whiskey!) and pour it in a store bought frozen pie shell. I've never made a homemade pecan pie myself, because I'm the only one who eats it, but my Aunt says it's one of the easiest pies to make from scratch. My Great Aunt used to make it with a whiskey glaze on top of the pecans, too make it really shiny. I'm not sure how she did it though. Anyone have any ideas?

                            If you have any syringes or meat injectors around you can fill it with booze and inject the store bought pie a day or two before you eat it.
                            I've done this with chocolate covered strawberries injected with Grand Marnier.

                              Thanks all, great suggestions. Ann, I'm planning ahead for Christmas, haven't tried yet.
                              FYI, I checked out the Karo syrup website. Using their recipes, you could empty a small liquor cabinet.

                                Try this for Christmas. Chocolate pecan pie is popular in Amish Country. Try dizzling some chocolate syrip on it..and warnming in the oven...perhaps not the same as restaurant made..but it should taste great!

                                  Chocolate pecan pie.......... my oh my, high school nostalgia back in Tennessee(45 years ago). My girlfriend's grandmother made those for Darlene and I to take on picnics. Delicious pie and very memorable outings with a great friend and girlfriend!
                                  Maybe I'll make one of each pie.

                                    Nothing's going to beat homemade, but isn't there a pre-made pecan pie mix in a jar? I'd add 1/2-3/4 cup bourbon to the mix and fill a prepared pie shell.

                                    We do this with Nonesuch mincemeat pie filling, add about 1/2 c bourbon, 1 cup chopped pecans to the mix -
