      This pie was fabulous! No clue as to why nobody has tried this recipe or rated it. Hmm? Well I did and loved it! However I used Pillsbury crust and did not use the bourbon. Next year I will make this again with JD for sure and maybe even go the whole 9 yards and make the crust as well. The streusel, by the way was awesome!! Great recipe Erica...
