Bourbon Pumpkin Pie
Bourbon Pumpkin Pie
This pie is smooth and creamy, with a double booze infusion. There's a hint of bourbon in the filling, but since booze that is baked loses its edge, there's maple bourbon mascarpone in the topping as well. The combination of the creamy filling and topping and a light layer of toasted pecans makes this pie the winner for adults this holiday season.

Dairy-Free, Egg-Free Coconut-Pumpkin Pie
Dairy-Free, Egg-Free Coconut-Pumpkin Pie
If you've ever had coconut-pumpkin soup, you know that these flavors work incredibly well together. The coconut seems to coax more flavor out of the pumpkin, making this one of the most pumpkin-y pumpkin pie we've ever eaten. However, if you are allergic to coconut (or just dislike the flavor) feel free to replace it with an equal amount of gluten-free, dairy-free milk.

Pumpkin Pie with Cinnamon Crunch and Bourbon-Maple Whipped Cream
Pumpkin Pie with Cinnamon Crunch and Bourbon-Maple Whipped Cream
This is not your typical pumpkin pieā€”the crust is graham cracker, the filling has just as much to do with the gooey pecan pie filling as it does pumpkin, and the toppings are bourbon-spiked whipped cream and a salty-sweet cinnamon oat crunch.
