This delicious Pumpkin Pecan Pie takes all the decision-making out of whether to make a pumpkin pie or pecan pie. Creamy pumpkin pie filling topped with sweet crunchy pecans makes this a special holiday treat.
Our family loves the traditional pies that one has around Thanksgiving and Christmas but we can never decide on which one I should bake. My husband’s favorite is Pecan while the rest of us favor Pumpkin. So I decided to try something a little different this year and put our two favorites together – pumpkin pie on the bottom and a bourbon pecan pie on the top. Didn’t know how it was going to turn out but I knew if it did I would make everyone in the family very happy.
I also decided to try a different crust than my norm. This one was made of gingersnaps, adding an extra dash of spicy, and really set the pumpkin flavor over the top.
When I make this pie again,and I certainly will, the only thing I would do different is to chop up the pecans so they weren’t so heavy. They tended to sink into the pie instead of laying on top. Of course, no one seemed to mind that it wasn’t separate and some thought it was better that way. Who knew??
So if you have a family that has more than one favorite, get ready and bake some double deliciousness into one pie dish! Enjoy!
