We love adding booze into our baking routine. Yes, a nice glass or bottle of wine while baking is delightful. Kidding (not kidding). For us, baking with booze starts with a vodka-spiked pie crust. Try this and you will never go back. Where does it end? As long as you have a bottle of something good and a hankering for something sweet and baked, it never has to.
