Pumpkin Pecan Pie

Do you ever feel like a total glutton when you walk away (ok, roll away) from the table after Thanksgiving dinner? I know most Americans eat until they can eat no more on this festive holiday filled with yummy turkey, cranberries, three kinds of potatoes, veggies, stuffing and we can’t forget about dessert!

Pie is served! It's a Pecan Pie on top and Pumpkin Pie on the bottom.

I think 48% of my friends insist on a pumpkin pie, another 48% demand a pecan pie and the remaining 4% want an apple pie. Honestly, I’d go for this Dutch Apple Pie, but this recipe is for everyone else.  I’ve combined the best of both worlds in this super easy Pumpkin Pecan Pie so that everyone at your Thanksgiving celebrations can have just one slice of pie.

 

The perfect dessert for you holiday celebrations. A Pumpkin Pecan Pie with the great flavor of both pies!

Now, with any pie, you can choose to make your own crust. I have a few to pick from :

  1. Walnut Pie Crust
  2. Pate Sucree Pastry Crust
  3. Egg Based Crust

Or, you can go the easy route and use a prepared pie crust. I think that they all are great and if you have time -great! If you don’t have time to make your crust from scratch, don’t sweat it. It’s a pie! You’re not supposed to take it so seriously.

I loved the yummy pumpkin pie base and the sweet, crunchy pecan topping. It was perfect with a dollop of fresh whipped cream on top.
