Merry Christmas Sam!

Thank you so much for welcoming me into you class when I am in Clearwater pet sitting or house sitting!

As you can see from my favorite Tampa Bay client, Bella, she has enjoyed a few too many pieces of this awesome pie that can serve as a dessert with an embedded aperitif!

Just kidding - she's not really looped - Bella's tongue just likes to hang out when she's relaxing!

Jave a wonderful holiday and see you in January! All the best for 2009!

Kentucky Pie

This recipe is essentially the Kentucky Pie recipe right off the Louisville stoneware pie plate bottom. Being from Louisville myself, I always add an extra nip or two of real Kentucky bourbon, of course, plus more chocolate chips than what is listed below.

Cream together 1/4 cup butter and 1 cup sugar.


  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cup light corn syup
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  • 2Tbs. Kentucky Bourbon (Makers Mark is my choice and I like to add a little more bourbon - to taste, you know?)

Mix well.

Pour into 8 inch pie shell.

Bake 40 to 45 minutes on 375 degrees oven.

Cool and serve.
