Pumpkin Pecan Pie – Two Favorites in One
Can’t decide between pumpkin and pecan pie for the holiday dessert table? Why not have both in the same pie? This Pumpkin Pecan Pie is the best of both worlds. Pumpkin pie on the bottom and pecan pie on the top. All you need is some fresh whipped cream or vanilla ice cream and you are set! I don’t know about you, but I am SO ready for all of the holiday food. I’ve got my stretchy pants ready. This is my favorite time of year!
How to Make Pumpkin Pecan Pie
This Pumpkin Pecan Pie is very easy to make. I used a frozen deep-dish pie crust. Feel free to make your own pie crust if you prefer. Frozen works just fine for me and is easy! The pumpkin layer goes in the crust first. Mix together some canned pumpkin, sugar, an egg, and some pumpkin pie spice. Spread that in the bottom of the crust. Next whisk together corn syrup, eggs, butter, sugar, vanilla, and chopped pecans. Pour that over the pumpkin layer and bake.
I like to use chopped pecans in this Pumpkin Pecan Pie. I made this with pecan halves and the pecans got a little too toasty (burnt) when cooking. The chopped pecans don’t burn while waiting for the center of the pie to set.
How to Make Homemade Pumpkin Pie Spice
I don’t know about you, but I rarely have pumpkin pie spice on hand for holiday recipes. If I do have some in my pantry, it is a year old. LOL! Because I don’t use a lot of pumpkin pie spice, I like to make my own. It is SO easy! There are only four ingredients in pumpkin pie spice – cinnamon, ginger, cloves, and nutmeg. Whisk up a batch now and use it for all your holiday recipes this year!
Pumpkin Pie Spice
4 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp ground cloves
1/2 tsp nutmeg
