This is the Ultimate Holiday Dessert! As a kid I rememeber the smell of mom’s sweet potato casserole cooking in the oven, and a house full of friends and family waiting for Thanksgiving or Christmas Dinner. Now, that I have children of my own I look to create these same memories for them. Even now the tradition of making this pie the first day of fall has been a family favorite. It is so creamy and sweet and with just the right amount of spice and crunch from the crispy gingersnap and pecan topping. The addition of the bourbon adds a refreshing hint of flavor just mingling in the background. So, now that the leaves are turning brillant yellows, oranges, and reds, my family and I suggest you try our favorite holiday dessert. We are sure it will become your favorite too!
