You can easily make this pie without the bourbon by using three tablespoons of melted butter in its place. To make it lighter, leave out the chocolate.—Sarah Varner, Santa Rita, Guam

"This recipe actually calls for two regular 9-inch pie crusts, so for Thanksgiving it made two pies. I used everything, even the bourbon, and it gave the pie a nice kick. Everyone loved it. If you don't like extremely rich desserts, I would leave out the chocolate chips."
