Ingredients for Pecan Pumpkin Pie

Pumpkin pie filling – Make this with pumpkin puree either from a can or make it homemade. Don’t forget to add pumpkin pie spice for the best flavor! Evaporated milk, an egg, and sugar make a filling that tastes so delicious.

Pecan pie filling – Use chopped pecans for the filling and whole pecans for the topping. Or use a streusel topping in addition to pecans, if desired. Fresh is best when it comes to pecans, so keep them stored in the freezer until ready for use. Then just mix together butter and eggs, corn syrup and sugar, with cornstarch to make the best filling ever.

Crust – Use a premade or frozen crust from the market, or make your own amazing flaky homemade pie crust. It’s not difficult to do, just follow the instructions carefully. Since this is a deep dish pie, it may need to be rolled a little thinner than usual.

How to Make Pumpkin Pecan Pie

  1. Combine the pumpkin pie filling ingredients, pour into a pie shell, and bake.
  2. Meanwhile, mix together the pecan pie filling ingredients and fold in chopped pecans.
  3. Spoon the pecan mixture over the baked pumpkin mixture.
  4. Top with pecan halves and bake (as per recipe below).
  5. Chill and serve with whipped cream.

This pie is perfect for making ahead! Simple follow the recipe instructions, bake the pie, and chill, (without whipped cream) tightly covered in the refrigerator. The pie will set and taste even better the next day! Drizzle with easy caramel sauce or maple syrup for a flavor twist.

Storing Leftovers

  • Leftovers will keep in the refrigerator for up to 3 to 4 days. Make sure to store it in an airtight container so it doesn’t dry out.
  • While pecan pies are great to freeze, freezing pumpkin pie isn’t recommended as the best way to maintain freshness, since it doesn’t thaw out well. So why not make a delicious pumpkin cheesecake for freezing instead?

  1. This is a great pie. It is tricky to get the crust so the edge is high enough so the pecan filing doesn’t overflow the edges and leave a sticky mess. Also, I found that blind baking the crust for 10 minutes helped keep the bottom of the crust flaky and a bit thicker. I added a little maple syrup and cut back a little on the white sugar. Definitely make the day before and chill overnight. This one gets better with some time in the frog!5 stars

  2. Hello! I’ve had this recipe pinned for several years but I noticed it’s different now. Do you still have the one where the filling has sweetened condensed milk and pecan topping is just brown sugar and eggs ??5 stars

    1. Hi Anna, the recipe has been updated for more consistently delicious results. But I think this is the version you are referring to:
      2 deep dish pie shells , unbaked
      ▢15 oz canned pumpkin
      ▢3 egg yolks
      ▢1 whole egg
      ▢1 can sweetened condensed milk (14oz)
      ▢1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
      ▢1 1/3 cup brown sugar
      ▢2/3 cup melted butter
      ▢2 eggs
      ▢2 egg yolks
      ▢2 tablespoons flour
      ▢1 teaspoon vanilla extract
      ▢1 1/2 cups chopped pecans

      Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
      Combine pumpkin, 3 egg yolks, 1 egg, sweetened condensed milk and pumpkin pie spice.
      In a separate bowl, combine brown sugar, melted butter, 2 eggs, 2 egg yolks, flour, vanilla and pecans. Set aside.
      Divide the pumpkin mixture evenly between the two pie shells and place in the oven for 15 minutes.
      Remove from the oven and gently spoon the pecan filling over top of the pumpkin (do not pour it) dividing between the two pies.
      Cover the edges of the crust with foil or a pie crust shield. Reduce heat to 350 degrees and cook an additional 35-40 minutes or until set. Cool completely and top with whipped cream.

    1. Hi Heahter, I would pop in the fridge if making in advance and bring out in time to let it come back to room temperature before serving.

  3. Hello, this recipe looks wonderful! I’m looking forward to making it just need to reduce the recipe. If I want to make it for just one pie can I divide everything in half?

  4. I fell in love with this recipe I wanted to try it. I went out yesterday and bought all the ingredients and made it today. I have to say it came out beautifully. I just wish I would have purchased some whip cream which I totally forgot about lol. Can’t wait to try other recipes I’ve saved in my phone.
