Praline Pumpkin Pie

by Necessities and Temptations

Pumpkin pie is the easiest to make, and will impress your guests - if that’s what you’re going for. I never used to enjoy pumpkin pie (a texture thing) until I tried this one. I'm sold.

1/3 cup chopped pecans

1/3 cup brown sugar

2 tablespoons butter, softened

1 9-inch unbaked pie shell

2 eggs, beaten

1 cup cooked pumpkin (you can make your own or buy it canned)

2/3 cup brown sugar

1 tablespoon all-purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon ginger

1/4 teaspoon cloves

1/8 teaspoon mace or 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg

1 cup evaporated milk

Preheat oven to 450˚. Combine pecans, 1/3 cup brown sugar and butter. Press into bottom of pie shell. Bake 10 minutes. Combine eggs and pumpkin. Add 2/3 cup brown sugar, flour, salt, spices and milk. beat until smooth and creamy. Pour into partially baked pie shell. Bake 45 minutes at 325˚. It’s done when an inserted butter knife comes out clean.
