Derby Pie. Chocolate, pecans, and bourbon: really all I've ever needed in life (I recently got into the habit of having a handful of frozen pecans as a snack.) Never having made a pecan pie before, I wasn't aware that 1) the crust shouldn't be pre-baked and 2) you should wait a few minutes for the pecan pieces to rise prior to placing in the oven. Oopsies.
Tuthilltown's Bourbon wouldn't be strong enough at all. It was, oh it was. Enough to put you right over the line from buzzy to drunky. Chocolate boozy nut goodness never felt so right. I think one's in order for this weekend's Preakness.
