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 are high on the list of my favorite snacks. 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?”

If you are in a hurry, feel free to use a store-bought pie crust, however, homemade pie crust is pretty easy to make. Especially speedy homemade pie crust!
Another fabulous good old-fashioned pie crust recipe is one that my daughter-in-law, Becky, was kind enough to share with us. This recipe comes from her grandmother, Viola, who was raised Amish and who later worked in a pastry shop for 5 years. Therefore, you know it’s good! You can find the recipe > HERE.
You can also make this recipe gluten-free by using a gluten-free pie crust mix. (Perfect for all of your gluten-free guests this Thanksgiving!)
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!
A delicious and wonderful dessert for Thanksgiving or any day of the year!
