Kentucky Bowler Pumpkin Spice Bourbon Pie

Do you want to be the hit at your next family gathering? Then you are going to want to make this Kentucky Bowler Pumpkin Spice Bourbon Pie. I promise it will not disappoint. It is similar to a Kentucky Derby pie but due to trademark infringement, I wanted to make sure not to use their name for it. Plus this recipe includes pumpkin spice bourbon which gives it a new twist on an old favorite.

Edited to Add:

Are you looking to negate the ‘alcohol’ or the taste of Bourbon?

If you want to eliminate the bourbon itself you can just do pumpkin pie spice alone.

If you want the taste of bourbon but not ‘alcohol-based’ you can combine caramel and vanilla to get that same idea along with pumpkin spice.

If you have any other questions- please feel free to ask. Or you can purchase extract here.

If you are not one to want alcohol in your recipe you can just use pumpkin pie spice alone.

    I really appreciated your inclusion of the ideas of vanilla/caramel for “bourbon-ish” notes without alcohol as well as pumpkin spice only versions, but would have loved suggested quantities for each alternative. I am assuming those quantities would be different than that of the extract suggested.

    Wonderful recipe- I can almost taste it in your writing style— would like to make one or all of the alternatives. Thank you

    If I want to use regular bourbon, plus spices, do you know the amounts? Don't want to buy a specialty bourbon for such a small amount.
