I know the turkey tends to steal the show on Thanksgiving, but I'm not ashamed to admit, I actually show up for the desserts. The pies to be exact. I love pumpkin and pecan pie and look forward to seeing them on the menu each year. Plus, can you eat a slice of each on any other day of the year and not get judged for overindulging? Probably not. But, if you are watching your waistline right now and don't want to gorge yourself on two pieces of pie but still want to treat yourself to the flavors of the holiday, I have the perfect recipe for you! This Pumpkin Pecan Pie from Golden Blossom Honey combines the deliciousness of pumpkin pie and is topped with pecans, so you get the best of both worlds all wrapped into one amazing dessert.
I have never made a pumpkin pie from scratch before, so I was a bit nervous that it wasn't going to bake up right. I was needlessly worried since it came out of the oven perfect on my first try. This recipe didn't call for pumpkin pie spice, which caused me to raise my eyebrows, but I went with the flow and hoped for a tasty outcome, and a tasty outcome was exactly what I got. If you serve this pie on Thanksgiving, you won't need to tell everyone to save their forks for pie. They may just start the meal off with dessert first!
