Death by Autumn Pie - Sweet Potato Pie with Pecan Pie topping and Bourbon Cream Sauce

Death by Autumn Pie

Happy Sukkot, everyone! This is by far my favorite Jewish holiday, probably because the food is my favorite kind of food! I have a real treat of a recipe for you today, and it’s perfect to celebrate the Feast of Booths. I call it Death by Autumn Pie. This is a sweet potato pie with pecan pie topping and a bourbon cream sauce that tastes just like eggnog. Do you think I overdid it?

Lazy Almond Pastry Tutorial

I’m going to save your sanity by teaching you my super easy and quick dessert, Lazy Almond Pastry. The almond part of this pastry is a misnomer. You can fill this thing with whatever you want: Nutella, a cinnamon/sugar apple mixture, cream cheese and berries, PUMPKIN SPICE SOMETHING. For this tutorial (and it is truly a DIY tutorial instead of a recipe), I went with the leftover almond filling from my Galette des Rois Recipe.
