Reviews for Pecan Pumpkin Pie
"My favorite pie! Made my first the year I got my first deep dish 10" pie plates. They needed two recipes to fill pumpkin and pecan but a lot was left over from each doubled recipe. Not having time or pans to fit all of what was left except another 10" deep dish, I poured the pumpkin in, but not near enough to fill so my brain said...humm...pumpkin and pecan, and poured pecan in too. Fantastic! Family loves it to this day...about forty or fifty years now."
"This was pretty easy to make and everyone enjoyed it. I will make it again next year."
"After reading the comments about the strong taste of the maple syrup, I halfed it in both the filling and the topping. I also did half the sugar in the topping and it was still plenty sweet. It was a huge hit!"
"This was very good, but when I added the pecans before baking, most of them sank into the pumpkin mixture toward the middle. That part of the pie never really set. Any suggestions?"
"we thought it was great. someone mentioned that it overflowed and yes, it did a little so I wouldn't pour quite all of it in the pan. I just made it yesterday and have already given it to 2 friends. I like the combo of both pumpkin and pecan pies. Very tasty!"
"My sister-in-law wants me to make this every Thanksgiving and she doesn't even like pumpkin."
"in your face good!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
"I made this for Thanksgiving for my family. It is definitely a keeper...I did cut back about 1/2 on the sugar and it was perfect. A little less sweet. Thanks for sharing this one!"
