Thank you so much Mike Orso from Nick Orso’s Body Shop for the very sweet shout out on your morning radio show! Thank you again for your donation to bring pies and compassion to the residents of Newtown, CT. I was very happy to help Beth Howard show the pie love back to you.
When making goodies with maple syrup, I always like to use copious amounts of nature’s nectar. Bonus when adding booze. Am I right? Welcome to maple whisky spice pie.
I’ve been wanting to make a maple pie for ages, but never found a recipe that seemed to inspire. Then I found Crown Royal’s Maple Whisky and knew the time was right to make this sweet dream come true.
If you like maple sugar candy and you like whiskey and you like pie…then this is the dessert por vous!

LOVE that PBS is locking down the most important vote of your life….cake or pie :)
Sometimes things come together in a perfect storm. As I sit and listen to the winds of Hurricane Sandy/Frankenstorm/Noreastercane outside, inside I am enjoying a slice of this much more pleasing mixture of ingredients in my new Caramel Apple Butter Pecan Pie…in a cinnamon graham cracker crust of course!
I must be honest…I love butter…in fact, I love BUTTERS…salted, unsalted, compound butters, nut butters, and FRUIT butters! That being said, when Musselman’s contacted me to see if I would like to create a recipe using their delicious apple butter, I jumped at the chance!
I was not fully prepared for the party in my mouth this pie brings. It came out so well in fact that I think it will be gracing my Thanksgiving table this year!
