It’s always nice when a friend thinks of you. In this particular case, a friend brought me some pumpkin puree recently. I used some of it to make this delicious Pumpkin Praline Pie (video version). Have you ever tasted one? It is easy to make– only a little different from traditional pumpkin pie. It has an extra layer between the crust and the pumpkin. I think you will like it!

You can use a regular pie crust for this pie, but I used a different crust this time– and it tasted great! I think the crust really made this pie special.

I’d love to hear if you make this pie!

Inside your unbaked crust, press the pecan brown sugar mixture.

Bake it as directed in the recipe below. This keeps your crust from getting soggy! Nobody likes soggy crust.

Then pour the pumpkin mixture on top of the pecan bottom and bake it.

Mine was very airy and bubbly (I used whipped cream instead of half and half).
