Boozy Pumpkin Pie

I haven't made this for years, but I used to make it every Thanksgiving as it was my late FIL's favourite dessert. I guess you could use any whisky but I do recommend Canadian rye. This is not a heavy pie and is good after a big meal. This is based on a Mennonite recipe called Karrups Pie Mit Schnapps.

    Does anyone know if 2% evaporated milk can be successfully substituted for cream? I'd like to make a lower-fat version

    This receipe is quite unique and has really impressed my friends and family. Everyone who has tried my take on this receipe raves about it, telling me they have never tasted anything quite like it. I make it using brandy, and I add some fresh ground/minced ginger, and a dash of nutmeg. I usually try to lighten-up my receipes, but using the real thing (full-fat whipping cream) is actually worth it here. Great receipe!

    This was great! I LOVE pumpkin pie. I used 3/4 cup presidente brandy instead of the whiskey. It was a little strong but it was so good!

    This was incredible. I made it for Thanksgiving and it was a big hit. I used 1/2 cup of Southern Comfort in it because that was all I had on hand. It wasn't too strong, just right. Thanks for a great pie recipe Lennie.

    Troy's point is excellent. U.S. alcohol is stronger than Canadian, so I do suggest cutting down the amount of whisky if you're not using a bottle bought in Canada.
