#54 Pumpkin Bourbon Walnut Tart

I’m not a Pumpkin Pie person. I’m just going to get it out there, and you can all hate me later. There’s just something about it…I think its the texture, or maybe the intense amount of pumpkin with nothing else going on. Whatever it is, I usually am just not a fan of traditional Thanksgiving desserts. With that said, I am here to show you a better alternative to a boring Pumpkin Pie !

I knew that I couldn’t just ignore the pumpkin pie all together, especially during the holidays, so I found this alternative recipe. How do we make Pumpkin Pie better? With Bourbon, Nuts, and a Streusel topping is how! Honestly, the bourbon went in a few more things besides this tart…tis the season!

This tart turned out amazing! Instead of having an intense pumpkin flavor, it had more of a holiday spice thing going on, combined with the buttery crust and the crunchy streusel nut topping – so yummy. I cant wait to make it into  miniture individual sized tarts.

I apologize for the lack of pictures, but it was Thanksgiving. Between there being way too many people in the kitchen and a toddler running around like crazy, the camera was the last thing on my mind.

    I’m not a pumpkin pie person either. Love pumpkin, just never been able to get excited about pumpkin pie. Your pumpkin bourbon tart looks wonderful. I’m out of bourbon and needed an excuse to buy another bottle!

    Taste of Home Holiday Editions are literally my favorite thing to come out of the mail box. I love pumpkin pie, but now I want THIS pumpkin pie. Can we re-do thanksgiving when I return home? I’ll even let you cook everything…

    Thanks for not giving up on pumpkin pie completely. The tart was amazing. It just wouldn’t be Thanksgiving without a little pumpkin!
