This Pumpkin Pecan Pie is the best of both of the traditional holiday pies, pumpkin and pecan, combined! A must have holiday dessert!
I use to work at a bakery and one year we had pumpkin pie mix and pecan pie mix leftover and we were just exhausted enough to toss them together. The result was delicious and now a must have at our house on Thanksgiving. No really, my sister asks specifically for this pie every year!
Here is my go to pie crust recipe.
Pumpkin Pecan Pie
This recipe looks complicated but you essentially make pumpkin pie filling and pecan pie filling and mix them together with equal amounts and bake. I use the Libby and Karo Syrup recipes because they are what I grew up with.
I have the pampered chef pie plates which are deeper than most. So when I make this pie I use two cups of each filling per pie shell and then cook the extra in ramekins. We grew up calling it pumpkin custard, aka pumpkin pie without the crust!
The pumpkin pie mix makes a little more than the pecan so divide accordingly.
