Bourbon Pumpkin Pie

Usually it is my grandmother and I’s tradition to make pumpkin pies together each Thanksgiving. We make them the traditional way with our own special touches. This year I was on my own and decided to make mini pumpkin pies! Everyone in my family seems to eat less and less dessert each Thanksgiving so I figured what better way than to make minis for everyone to enjoy. They were not only delicious, thanks to the bourbon I added, but also created a nice display.food5
