    Hey there! Have you ever added bourbon to this pie? Wondering how much?

      No! But I get it would be great. I’d add just a shot. This would be good with a layer of chocolate along the bottom of the crust as well…

        Definitely… A la Kentucky Derby! I’m going to do it with half hazelnuts. Can’t wait!
