Bourbon-caramel sauce should one of the Mother Sauces.

AFAIC, bourbon is THE mother sauce  ;D

That explains a great deal.  :D

Seriously, when you use bourbon in desserts, do you find it makes a difference if you use a cheap brand vs. the good stuff? I've always used something like Jim Beam.

One of my sisters in law makes fantastic pecan pie for Thanksgiving. I talked to her about adding bacon one year. She did but cooked it soft and left it in whole pieces - Iím sure it was because she thought I would like it best that way. It was difficult to eat but what choices did I have? Someday I want to try this myself with the bacon diced up and cooked crispy before adding it to the pie.

There is Jim Beam and then there is the cheap stuff. While I'm not a huge fan of drinking Beam, it's beautiful in deserts.

Thanks, Craig. I'll stick with the Beam. Lucky pick on my part.

I made these for the office, everything from scratch (including chocolate, 74% dark).  Fillings are either hazelnut praline or coconut caramel.  Pink stuff is a non-dairy raspberry white chocolate.  Messy hobby.  ;D

Hey!! We have missed you. Good to see you back. Cookies look great. Must be fun having your own pecans.

Thank you, Tony! I sure have been busy learning other cooking techniques and so glad my hubby decided he needed pizza and other carbs back in his life. 


I do love pecans, and even the chore of shelling them by hand is very soothing to me.  It's like reverse engineering a gentle not too gentle Crack crack crack to get the halves out completely without breaking...  these cookies are excellent.

Our oldest boy is in 8th grade and for his French class he gets extra credit of they make a French dish. We made creme brŻlťe. We donít have a torch so the crust is a little uneven but everyone loved them.
