4 stars from 2 ratings of The Best Ever Pumpkin Pecan Pie

Two popular fall pies in one! Pumpkin pie and pecan pie together! Who would have thought!

This is an extremely popular pie in our family! Both of us love pecan AND pumpkin pie. In the past I've simply made dozens of them both to hand out to friends and family, and serve at parties, but no more after this recipe!

When we can have them both, there's no real reason to. Well, obviously every now and then we simply crave one or the other. So I guess I give in sometimes and just make the one, but that is the case so rarely.

Try this recipe and you'll understand. These two amazing flavors together make your taste buds tingle and they won't except anything less ever again. It's just too good!

Cook Time

Prep time: 20 min
Cook time: 1 hour
Ready in: 1 hour 20 min
Yields: Serves about 8 people 1 slice of pie

Ingredients

  • 1 + 2 large eggs, separated
  • 1/3 cup + 2/3 cup sugar, separated
  • 1 cup canned pumpkin
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
  • pinch salt
  • 2/3 cup light or dark cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter or margarine
  • 1 teaspoon Mexican vanilla
  • 1 cup crushed pecans
  • 1 (2-count) package refrigerated pie crusts

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray 1 large pie pan generously with cooking spray.
  2. Roll out one of your refrigerated pie crusts into your pie pan.
  3. When I use refrigerated pie crusts, I typically use a rolling pin to flatten them out just a little bit more before laying them out in the pie pan. This gives me an edge to play with before baking.
  4. In a medium bowl, beat one egg and your canned pumpkin together until smooth and well blended.
  5. Add in your 1/3 cup of sugar, cinnamon, ginger, cloves, and salt and mix well.
  6. Pour this pumpkin mixture into the bottom of your pie crust and spread evenly.
  7. In another medium mixing bowl, beat your remaining two eggs.
  8. Stir in your corn syrup, brown sugar, melted butter and vanilla. This should be cloudy but smooth and syrupy.
  9. Stir in your crushed pecans, and gently pour over your pumpkin mixture, smoothing evenly across entire pie.
  10. Bake your pie for 1 hour at 350 degrees F.
  11. Let your pie cool completely before serving. It might need a little time to firm up completely out of the oven on a cooling rack.
  12. Yummy! Yummy!
