This pie is my own creation and always draws compliments whenever I make it. I like to serve it cold with vanilla ice cream. I've been collecting recipes since I was a teen and enjoy changing them to suit my family's tastes.
THIS IS a recipe my mother-in-law shared with me several years ago.
It's easy to make, and most of the ingredients are in everybody's cupboard. And it does really taste like pecan pie.
We have it quite often, but it's tradition to have this pie on the menu during the holidays.

Meet the Cook: When I first made this pie for my family, the reactions weren't real words - they were more "Ooh!" and "Mmm!" I created it to enter in a local fair. My goal was an apple pie like no other, and it ended up winning third prize. ("That was very interesting!" one judge said.)
Working with children is something I love. In fact, I hold "Fun with Food" classes after school for elementary students ages 6-8. My own family consists of my husband and our daughter, 11.

The first time I made this for my family, they gobbled up this wonderful change-of-pace holiday dessert. It has a scrumptious layer of apples under the pumpkin.Elizabeth Montogomery, Taylorville, Illinois
Meet the Cook: The first time my husband tried this, he said there ought to be a law against anything tasting so good! I've served it at picnics and family occasions...and even once at a bridal shower. It's fine either as a dessert or for breakfast.
We are the parents of three grown children and grandparents of two.
