This bourbon butterscotch apple pie has everything you love about the classic but with a boozy kick.



For the bourbon butterscotch:

For the rest of the pie:


  1. In a small saucepan, combine all of the bourbon butterscotch sauce ingredients, and cook over medium-low heat.
  2. Once the brown sugar has dissolved, continue cooking the sauce for about 15 more minutes, stirring frequently, until it coats the back of a spatula and has thickened and reduced.
  3. Peel and thinly slice your apples. In a large bowl, stir together the sliced apples, cinnamon, and flour.
  4. Add the bourbon butterscotch and stir until the apples are completely coated.
  5. Press one of your pie crusts into your pie pan and trim the edges so that they no longer hang over the edge of your pie pan.
  6. Fill with your apple mixture. You can simply cover the pie with another crust or do something fancier if you like.
  7. Bake at 425F for 40-45 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown.
