Pie for Thanksgiving

We love pumpkin pie and we love pecan pie. This year there would be just a small group around our table, so two pies was too much. Too much pie and too much work. My solution:

Pumpkin-Pecan Pie

Two delectable layers of bliss:


A crust recipe from Garden & Gun magazine, our old standby for pumpkin pie – just read the instructions on the can – and my recently perfected version of pecan pie, all combined into one. Yummy!!

It even looked good fresh out of the oven:

Pumpkin-Pecan Pie,

Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving Day!

All the best for the holidays!



  1. Thanks Ludwig, I really like pumpkin and so does Pat and he really likes pecan pie so this seems a perfect and delicious combo. Thanks for the treat for the if a fork would only work for a blog post.

  2. For now, just a treat for the eyes. With 3-D printing already getting very popular, can electronic food delivery be far behind? Thanks. Beatrice - back to the lab ...

  3. That pie looks delicious! I am going to try a recipe for pumpkin pie that uses Splenda instead of sugar.

  4. Thank you Linda! Just polished off the last piece, now I can start dieting - at least until Christmas.
