The picture does not do this pie justice. My son in law was the inspiration for this pie, he enjoys a good bourbon on occasion and I wanted to figure out a special recipe for him. Just use a good bourbon, something smooth and flavorful, I used Devil's cut.

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
This cake is fantastic! My husband can't stop talking about how good this is ... my adult son also really loved it too. This is definitely a celebratory dessert perfect for a holiday, cocktail party or special occasion.

I used a pre-made Oreo pie crust as suggested. Make sure to chill it well so it sets up nicely, then garnish with whipped cream and chocolate shavings or cookie crumbs. Just wonderful!
