Praline Pumpkin Pie

Praline Pumpkin Pie created by Marg (CaymanDesigns)

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.

    We have never liked pumpkin pie until I made this recipe, the only problem is I was able to make 3 pies with the amount of filling in this recipe so my question is did you use a deep pie crust? The praline crust I will double next time though. Thank you for helping us enjoy a traditional Thanksgiving day treat.

    I made this pie for Thanksgiving dinner hoping for something a bit different. However, it was not the hit I was hoping it to be. The texture did not turn out that great. The praline just melted into the crust. The whole pie was a bit soggy for my tastes.

    This pie is delicious! The pumpkin part is nice a spicy, which we love. I would have liked a little more of the pecan layer, but followed the recipe the first time. I don't know if doubling the pecan layer would be okay or not, but all and all this is a great pie with whipped cream on top! Thanks, Carole in Orlando

    Was great. The praline was an unexpected surprise. Best warm.
