World's Greatest Pie

Pecan Pumpkin Pie

This pie is insanely good. And easy too. Do not leave out the orange zest. The original recipe calls for 1/2 cup each of white and brown sugar but I think it is better with a bit less.
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup white sugar
  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar 
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups solid pack pumpkin puree
  • 1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon orange zest
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup chopped pecans (the original recipe calls for pecan halves, which do look very nice so I frequently use a combo of whole and chopped)
  • 1 pre-made rolled pie crust (unless you're one of those folks who make their own crust)


  1. Combine eggs, sugars, flour, spices and salt. Blend in pumpkin. Gradually add milk; mix well.
  2. Pour into 9-inch pie shell. Bake in 450 degree F (230 degrees C) oven 10 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) and bake 40 to 50 minutes longer.
  3. Make pecan topping: Combine 2 tablespoons butter, 1 tablespoon grated orange rind, 1/4 cup brown sugar and 3/4 cup pecans.
  4. Sprinkle pecan topping over pie the last 10 minutes before removing from the oven. 
  5. Cool well. Serve with whipped cream, if desired.
