Get ready to win the holiday bake-off with this surefire winner. Let me say this, Whoever thought to combine traditional pumpkin pie with Fireball whiskey is an absolute genius. If you've never had Fireball before, it's a spicy cinnamon whiskey that tastes like you drank a cup of red hot candies. It's great mixed with other cocktails (Spiked apple cider and Fireball whisky combined taste just like apple pie). So adding it into a pumpkin pie recipe seems so fitting, especially if you are planning on bringing the dessert to Friendsgiving or a holiday barbecue.

How To Make Fireball Pumpkin Pie

So this just happened 🎃

One of the reasons I really love this Fireball whiskey pumpkin pie is how it is cooked. Step away from that oven folks, this pie is cooked completely on the grill! So, heat it up to 400F.

First, get yourself a frozen pie crust (or make your own using our vodka pie crust recipe) and poke small holes in the dough with a fork. Place the pie crust on the opposite side of the hot coals (or of the gas) and cover grill, cooking for 15-20 minutes. Remove crust and reduce heat to 325F.

Next up, make the pie filling by combining pure pumpkin puree, evaporated milk, eggs, sugar, salt, ground ginger, ground cloves, and a hearty pour of Fireball whiskey. Mix ingredients in a mixing bowl then pour the mixture into the crust.

Like the naked pie crust, place the filled pie on the opposite side of the hot coals and cover the grill. Cook for 25-30 minutes then rotate the pie a half turn to ensure even cooking. Cover and cook for an additional 25-30 minutes and check the doneness of the pie by sticking a toothpick into the center. If the toothpick comes out clean, the pie is ready to come out and cool.

Once cooled completely, top the pie with whipped cream and serve with a sprinkling of ground cinnamon.

This recipe was inspired by BBQ Pit Boys.
