Pecan-Pumpkin Pie is a wonderful combination of flavors that will make your home smell just like fall.
Since fall is right around the corner I have started thinking about all things fall related. Pumpkin pie is high on my favorite pies list and Sugar and Spice Pecans is high on my favorite snacks list. What could be better than combining two of my favorite things into one? “Well, Hello there Pecan-Pumpkin Pie. Where have you been all my life?”

- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
- 1/4 cup light corn syrup
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
- 1/4 cup brown sugar, packed
- 1 1/2 cups pecan, halves
- 2 tbsp butter
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place crust in a 9-inch glass pie plate. In medium mixing bowl, beat all pumpkin filling ingredients together until blended. pour filling into pie crust. In another mixing bowl, beat all pecan filling ingredients (except pecans) together until blended. Stir in pecans. Spoon mixture over pumpkin layer.

As this pie baked my whole house smelled wonderful! I could hardly wait for it to cool off enough so that I could dive into it!
Since there is so much filling in this pie I highly recommend placing a baking pan (with sides) under it while it bakes. The pan will catch any filling that may bubble over and helps keep your oven clean.
I really wish that I could give each of you a bite of this delicious pie. The combination of yummy pumpkin + pumpkin pie spices + pecans + brown sugar = amazing!
Top each slice with a large dollop of whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla bean or cinnamon ice cream. Oh heck… go ahead… pile them all on and have a slice with each!
