This decadent pie combines all we love about Pumpkin Pie with the best elements of a Pecan Pie.

Ingredients

  • 1 9-inch refrigerated pie crust (home-made or store-bought)

  • 1/2 cup pecan pieces

  • 1-1/4 cup dark brown sugar

  • 3 tablespoons butter, at room temperature

  • 2 large eggs

  • 1 cup pumpkin purée (not pumpkin pie filling)

  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour

  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves

  • 1/4 teaspoon ground mace

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1 cup evaporated milk

  • candied pecans for garnish (optional)

Directions

  • Pre-heat oven to 375 F. In a food processor, add pecan pieces, 1/2 cup of the dark brown sugar, and butter. Process until ingredients hold together like a paste, making sure the pecans are of a mealy texture. Press very firmly into bottom only of the pie crust so it will not float up during baking. In a mixing bowl, beat eggs until frothy with hand-mixer or standing mixer. Then with mixer on low, or stirring by hand, add the rest of the brown sugar (3/4 cup) and the rest of the ingredients. Beat only until well mixed. Pour slowly into praline lined crust. Cover edges of crust with aluminum foil to prevent over-browning. Bake in oven checking after 45 minutes. Pie is done when filling is set but still slightly jiggly in center. Depending on oven, 45-55 minutes total. Remove from oven and let cool on counter until room temperature. Chill in refrigerator. Garnish with whipped cream and candied pecans.

Notes

  • This recipe was adapted from a recipe by Beth Ann Woodward of Spring, Texas. See her original recipe here. The original version includes her recipe for pie crust as well as instructions for the caramelized pecans for garnish.

Excellent pie. I found the recipe in the Honolulu Star News about 30 years ago, and have added it my "heirloom" recipes for the next generation.
