Anne's Pumpkin Pecan Pie Recipe

Serves 6

This pie looks like a pecan pie, but is not so sweet. The flavors and textures of pumpkin and pecan tend to compete. If a full cup of sugar were to be used in the pumpkin layer, the result might be improved.

Ingredients:

  • Pumpkin layer:
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup solid pack pumpkin
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 unbaked 9-inch pie shell
  • Pecan layer:
  • 2/3 cup light corn syrup
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 tbsp butter or margarine, melted
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup pecan halves


Instructions:

1. Combine egg, pumpkin, sugar and pie spice in medium bowl.
2. Spread over bottom of pie shell.
3. Combine corn syrup, eggs, sugar, butter and vanilla in the same bowl; stir in pecans.
4. Spoon over pumpkin layer.
5. Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 50 minutes or until filling is set.
6. Cool on wire rack.
