Perfect Union


One + one = wow.

Per usual, I’m on dessert duty for Thanksgiving and this pumpkin pecan pie recipe is first on my baking docket. A spectacular marriage of two great pies, the pecan element jazzes up the normally simple pumpkin pie, and the pumpkin is a smooth alternative to the typical cavity burning pecan pie filling.

Even better, this pie travels well by car. For an extended trunk ride (so far 3 hours has been our max drive time with this pie), place the pie in a cooler with ice packs; pad cooler with towels so the pie is stable. Wear your drawstring pants.
