Why make Pecan Pie without corn syrup??

One word: F L A V O R! I can’t for the life of me figure out why ANYONE would want to make a flat tasteless overly sweet corn syrup pie when you could be making an old-fashioned pie that tastes so much better.

Why make a Pecan Pumpkin Pie?

It ALL started with me making one of those funny graphics for my Facebook Page that asked “Which One Is Your Pie Or Die for Thanksgiving?”

Fun Pie graphic.

A Facebook friend said she likes a Piecaken, pecan and pumpkin pie AND a cake all in one. Another friend said she likes to bake a 1/2 and 1/2 pie and eat JUST the section where the two pies met. I thought that was hilarious and also interesting. So I looked it up but what I discovered was that you can make a two-layer pie. And so it was done.

I took the OG Libby’s Recipe for their half-and-half pie and used the pumpkin portion for the bottom of the pie. And then I made my pecan pie recipe and poured it over the top. AMAZING!
