~Bacon & Bourbon Apple Pie!

For those of you that may not know, I’m not a drinker, I mean I might have 2 drinks in a year that I actually finish.  Nothing against it, I just don’t find myself making it a priority.  That being said, it’s a totally different story when it comes to my love for cooking with Booze..lol!  I will go out of my way to incorporate alcohol into every usual and unusual tasty place I can think of, just about every chance I get.

~Like, ummm…Apple Pie!

Something about the combo of Bourbon, Apples and a super cute, Bacon Lattice topper, is a triple threat of out of this world deliciousness!

There’s just no other way for me to explain how they perfectly compliment each other.  You’ll just have to add some shock value to your Dessert, and give this drunken delight a try!  :)

What you’ll need:

1 Pillsbury Refrigerated Pie Crust..defrosted.  Or you can make your own!

12 slices of Bacon

2-21 oz. cans of Apple Pie Filling

2 (or so) tbsp. of Bourbon

A 9″ oven safe Pie Plate


First make the Bacon Lattice.  On a parchment lined sheet pan, weave each Bacon strip the way you would any Pie Lattice…

Bake the Lattice at 350 until it’s crispy.  Peek in on it to make sure it’s not burning…

Let it cool on some paper towel…

Add the Pie Crust evenly into the Pie Plate and crimp the edges all pretty.  :)

Pour the Bourbon into the Apple Pie Filling and gently mix it up…

Add it those tipsy Apples into the Crust…

Top it with the Bacon Lattice and bake at 350 for approx. 15 minutes, or until the crust is cooked and the Pie is warmed through…

If your Lattice starts to get too dark while the Pie is baking, simply cover it with some foil for the remainder of the baking process!

Let it cool before you cut into it…

Make sure to take a moment to gaze into its eyes..LOL!

Before you completely have your way with it…

Like this!  ~Enjoy!  :)


  1. Oh my! This one will haunt my dreams until I make it a reality!!!!!

  2. Will definitely try this….without the bourbon!

  3. This looks and sounds delicious! I’m the same way, very rarely have/finish a drink. Two a year is a lot for me. But, I DO like cooking with booze! How crazy is that? lol And, there’s so little in this recipe that I wonder if you can taste it. I would probably accidentally add a little more. ;) Thanx for this great recipe! =)

  4. Ooooh my guudnessssssd

  5. Bacon AND Bourbon…. Oh my.

  6. Made this tonight, but used graham cracker pie crust, it was excellent!

  7. How long should you cook the bacon?

    • Until its crispy.

  8. This was good…of course my husband LOVED it..I actually though just made my own crust, and apple filling. ( so much better than processed stuff) It turned out really good. I also baked my pie with tin foil on top and just before it was done, I added the already cook bacon top (no foil) and baked for 20mins longer..PERFECTION! :)

    • could I have your recipe for good pie filling and good crust? I would so much like an excellent apple pie. Good idea of putting the bacon on last. thanks.

  9. My bacon-loving son will probably go crazy over this pie !!

  10. oh lord i love this and the bacon bombs, (hope you dont mind i shared a few pics and put a link to the recipes on my facebook page “bacon-the reason you’re not a vegetarian” :)

  11. This pair up well with sharpe cheddar or some yummy double Brie!!!!
