TWD: Thanksgiving Twofer Pie

Pecan Pie? oh yes, please! Pumpkin Pie? Not so much. I don't know why I don't like pumpkin pie. It's not the consistency thing- I love custards and mashed foods. And I love the spices involved here. But pumpkin pie and I have never been friends. Even with a top layer of gooey pecans, this pie just didn't do it for me. My first Tuesdays with Dorie challenge that I didn't care for.

I enjoyed making this recipe and a few people 'round my house liked it. I did have to cover the crust edges about half way through as they were getting pretty dark and crispy in the oven. I just twisted some foil and fit it around the pie dish.

Maybe I'll try drinking my obligatory piece of Thanksgiving pumpkin pie on Thursday instead. Here's a recipe for a Pumpkin Pie Martini!

I am sorry to hear yours didnt turn out like you expected.
I have never had Pecan pie before so this was new for me! I thought it was good drenched in whip cream of course:)

Have a great Thanksgiving!

I'm sorry this didn't work out for you, Stevi... but all the same, I thank you very much for participating with me this week!

Sorry you weren't a huge fan, but you can always be a pie bandit and eat the pecan topping off :)

I wasn't thrilled with the pie either.

But, it sure smelled great baking.

Sorry you didn't like it. I thought it was just okay, but Beautiful Daughter liked it. I think I will stick to two separate pies. Ah, well.
