Friend, I love pecan pie.
I mean, I adore it.
I wish I could live on pecan pie, but I don’t know if my teeth and hips could stand such a diet.
Pumpkin pie, not so much. I like it enough, but I don’t love it.
That’s not true.
I do love it when it’s mounded with 2 cups of Cool Whip, but then it sort of ceases to be pumpkin pie and is really just pumpkin-y whipped topping, so I don’t think that counts.
Anyway, when I started having my family’s Thanksgiving celebration feast at my house, I set out to find a great pumpkin pie recipe. I didn’t find one at first, so I combined several.
This pie pulls together the creamy goodness of a traditional pumpkin pie with the flavors of pecan and a little bit of brown sugar for good measure.
The result is amazing, truly.
This recipe is so good that you don’t need to do a trial run ahead of time, but you can if you want to experience the decadence twice.
This and 12 other recipes are found in my brilliant ebook called How to Host a Stress-Free Holiday Meal. You’ll want to check that out so that you can have the least stressful holiday hosting of your entire life while enjoying the best food ever – complete with rich and creamy crockpot mashed potatoes, a fantastically juicy roast turkey, and a whole bunch of decadent desserts.
