    This pumpkin pie is sooooo good. The caramelized pecans give a sweet crunch contrast to the spicy/creamy filling.

      Evelyn your recipe got two thumbs up from most of my family, as a matter of fact my sister ate three pieces in about an hours time! A few people did think that the topping made it too sweet but I didn't think so! Made recipe as stated except I upped the spices a bit as we like our pumpkin pies spicy! Thanks for another terrific recipe!
