Haven't made this yet, but sounds like a great combo for next fall, when family want both pumpkin and pecan pies.

  • 2 cups canned or mashed pumpkin
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup dark corn syrup
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 unbaked pie shell

  • 1 cup chopped pecans


Break eggs into a large bowl. Beat with wire whisk. Add pumpkin, sugar, corn syrup, vanilla, cinnamon, and salt. Stir until sugar is dissolved and ingredients are well blended. Pour into pie shell and sprinkle with pecans.

Bake in a pre-heated 350 degree F oven for 40 minutes or until filling is set.

  • 1/2 cup plus 2 Tbsp. firmly packed brown sugar, divided
  • 4 eggs, divided
  • 2 Tbsp. sour half and half
  • 1/4 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp. nutmeg
  • 3/4 cup light corn syrup
  • 3 Tbsp. butter, melted and cooled

  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 1/3 cups shelled pecan halves
  • 1 9-inch pie crust, unbaked


Whisk together pumpkin, 2 Tbsp. brown sugar, 1 egg, sour half and half, cinnamon and nutmeg until smooth.

In a separate bowl combine corn syrup, the remaining brown sugar and eggs, the butter, vanilla, rind, lemon juice, and salt. Stir in the pecans. Pour the pumpkin mixture into the pie shell. Gently pour the pecan mixture over the pumpkin mixture trying not to combine the 2 mixtures. Bake at 425 degrees F for 15 minutes; reduce heat and bake at 350 degrees F an additional 45 to 50 minutes or until pie is set.

Prepare pastry for single pie crust. On a lightly floured surface roll out dough to a 12 inch circle. Transfer pastry into plate, being careful not to stretch it. Trim pastry edge and crimp. For filling, in a mixing bowl, combine eggs, pumpkin, sugar, corn syrup, vanilla and the 3/4 tsp. cinnamon; mix well. Place the pastry-lined pie plate on the oven rack. Carefully pour filling into pastry shell. Sprinkle with pecans.

Bake in 350 degrees F oven for 50-55 minutes or until knife inserted near center of pie comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack. Serve with whipped cream sprinkled with cinnamon. Makes 8 servings.


For Pastry for Single-Crust Pie:

In a bowl stir together flour and salt. Using a pastry blender, cut in shortening until pieces are pea-size. Using 4-5 Tbsp. cold water total, sprinkle water, 1 Tbsp. at a time, over flour and toss with a fork until all the dough is moistened. Shape dough into a ball.
