Keep Your Fork, There's Pumpkin Pecan Pie!

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. 


Pumpkin Pecan Pie

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!

Ingredients
3 eggs
1 (15 ounce) can pumpkin, not pie filling
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup GOLDEN BLOSSOM HONEY
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 unbaked 9-inch piecrust
1 cup chopped pecans
whipped cream, optional

    1. I will never understand your dislike for pumpkin. It is so dang yummy (well, once you add in the spices lol) That's my photo but Honey Bear owns it now ;) I've been finding all kinds of cute new cookie cutters at the craft store lately and have been snapping them up left and right (like for making those little leaves on the pie). I just bought a bunch of Christmas ones, now all I need to do is figure out how I want to use them!

    5. I was just going through my saved videos last week and came across those pumpkin rolls and kicked myself for not having made them yet. I actually haven't made any bread myself in a few months. It's just been super busy since the beginning of October around here. I will definitely get to them soon and will share a photo on FB when I do :)

  4. That sound SO GOOD! Pecan pie is one of the biggies down here in the south. This combination of pecan and pumpkin sounds delicious.

  5. Pumpkin pie and pecan pie are two classic holiday desserts. I love this double whammy recipe. This recipe is AWESOME!

  6. This looks amazing and perfect for the holidays! Now if I could somehow get my pies to look that beautiful!

  7. This does look so good! I made a pumpkin pie, but used almond milk instead of evaporated milk. I added a bit of coconut flour to thicken it up, our own cooked pumpkin, and less sugar (since coconut flour has a sweetness in it). Of course other spices. It turned out good. I love pumpkin pie. Most pie I'll dig into though. It's all good.

    1. I love the idea of substituting almond milk for evaporated milk in recipes. I just made a fabulous praline sauce that called for evap. milk, but now I am wishing I would have tried almond milk. Maybe next time.

      I agree on any pie being all good. I so wish it was birthday pie instead of birthday cake. I'll eat pie any day of the week!

  13. The pie looks amazing, and I already know I'd love it. But let's talk about those leaves!! How cute. That was a fabulous idea to use for making the crust. Pinning it.

  15. I actually like that it doesn't have pumpkin spice in it. This looks great with the pecans on top. My favorite though is good ol' apple pie.
