Apple Brandy & Pecan Pie

Our favorite way to enjoy pecan pie is between sips of brandy, so we make vanilla custard ice cream and spike it with lots and lots of Clear Creek apple brandy. And then we stir in big hunks of our homemade pecan pie, made with a shortbread-style crust so it stays crisp. We strongly suggest enjoying it in a rocking chair curled up under a blanket next to a roaring fire.
