I shared this bourbon pumpkin tart back in my first year of blogging, but have changed the recipe a bit. So, I hope you don`t mind the revisit of a wonderful pumpkin dessert! At the same time, I`ve been meaning to make a compilation of Fall recipes because I have so many and love them all. They deserve another reminder. *winkwink*
The first time I made this tart, I loved it instantly. All of my family and friends know I`m not a fan of alcohol, so I never purchase any. Unless, it`s for baking. Yep, I went out to buy a whole bottle of bourbon whiskey just to bake this tart. It felt so weird to get carded at the registrar! You only need 1/4 cup, but I had no other choice. I`m not sure what to do with the leftover bourbon, so if any of you have good bourbon recipes, do share with me! ;)
This tart is really just a variation of a pumpkin pie. The crust is easy to work with and there's a wonderful streusel layer on top of the pumpkin filling. And, who`s not head over heels for streusel?! The tart isn`t thick, about 1 1/2 inch, so it`s not a heavy pie.
