Along with the classic Libby’s Famous Pumpkin Pie, we also had Chocolate Bourbon Pecan Pie at Thanksgiving dinner. I love pecan pie and decided to switch it up this year with chocolate and boooze. It was SO good. Very rich, but very good. We shared both of our pies with my family and everyone seemed to like them both.
