What to bake on christmas eve: Walnut whiskey pie

When the usual holiday tasks have been ticked off—stockings hung, tree trimmed, Love Actually watched (twice)—the moment has come to throw together the sort of pie that is so decadent, you would blush to be making it at any other time of the year. Walnut Whiskey Pie is a grown-up confection of butter, nuts, and spirits, best enjoyed in the afternoon on Christmas Eve with a pot of tea and Nat King Cole on the radio.
