“This pie is extremely rich and should be served in small wedges. It's especially good with a dollop of bourbon whipped cream.”

This is a nice basic recipe for Jefferson Davis pie. The terrific thing about this pie is that it's so customizable. If you've never had it, it's difficult to explain the taste, but I'll try. It's sort of like a pecan pie minus the pecans, with a candied vanilla-rum flavor. Complicated, right? I further complicate things by adding a pinch of cinnamon, nutmeg and ground cloves to the mix. Doing so changes the taste to something closer to a pecan pie without the nuts crossed with a pumpkin pie minus the pumpkin. Also, for this recipe, be sure to use two deep dish pie crusts (there's going to be a whole lot of bubbling going on in the oven) and also cover your crusts with foil because they will burn easily given the lengthy cook time.

It's in the oven now, but was a little bit of a disaster last night because it overflowed everywhere in my oven. It should be noted that deep-dish pie crusts be used in order to avoid this. I'm trying again tonight and hopefully it will be as yummy as it sounds.

Very Rich and Delicious! Please note the recipe is for (2) 9" Pies. If you will take about a 2" srip of aluminum foil and wrap in around the exposed crust until the last 15 min. of will keep the crust from burning. Happy Thankgiving!
