Every year we plan out our Thanksgiving menus. Turkey, Sides, Appetizers, Beverages, and Desserts! Oh the desserts! We are traditional and make Pumpkin and Pecan Pies. I have thrown in a Chocolate Bourbon Pecan Pie (YUM!).
When I hit the dessert table, I usually take a little bit of everything. (It’s the right thing to do!) But what if two of your favorites were combined. Like Pumpkin Pie married Pecan Pie!!
Well, it happened the other night in my kitchen. A few years ago, Southern Living introduced this little union. And we all lived happily ever after! You need to plan to make this pie the night before serving. It is better when it has time to completely cool and flavors will pop. I have made a few adjustments to the recipe and it is perfection.
