This recipe is very good!...for the crust, I process the flour and brown sugar for about 15 seconds in a food processor, then add in very cold butter, process with a couple of on and off turns, then just mix in the pecans by hand, I find that the crust bakes out to a lighter texture if done by this method. You also might want to increase the sugar and cinnamon slightly in the filling. This is a delicious pumpkin recipe that I have made many times in the Fall season. thanks for sharing KyJo!...Kittencal:)

What a great recipe! I have made these several times and have never been disappointed. The texture does vary according to the brand of pumpkin used and I prefer Libby's if I can find it. Not too sweet - just perfect!
