A great choice when you can't decide whether to make pumpkin or pecan pie! I adore this pie. I think the praline layer adds a lovely new dimension to the traditional pumpkin pie. The pumpkin layer is the best I've ever had also. Very light and tasty without being overly sweet. A few people weren't crazy about it though because they said there was something 'wrong' with having nuts in a pumpkin pie. LOL! That's okay, that just means more for me!! And yes, you can double the praline layer, I do. You will end up with a little too much filling, but the pie will turn out fine.

I have been making pumpkin pie every Thanksgiving for years so for a change I tried this one and it was delicious. So much lighter and tastier! I guess I changed my traditional pumpkin pie to this one!

I have made this pie instead of plain ol' pumpkin pie for the last 7 years. Everyone always raves about it. The flavor is wonderful and the texture is slightly lighter than traditional pumpin pie, I suspect due to the substitution of light cream instead of canned milk. If you try this, you won't go back to plain ol' pumkin again!
