Pumpkin Pecan Pie Recipe

Pumpkin Pecan Pie Recipe

I've yet to meet a person who doesn't have room for a piece of this pie! Up here 8,000 feet in the Rockies, my husband and I are enjoying retirement. We're active in our little church (where I try all my recipes on people who love to eat!). We have four grown children and 11 grandchildren. —Jean Lockwood, Bayfield, Colorado
