    Title: Pumpkin-Pecan Pie
    Categories: Pies, Squash, Nuts, Pastry
    Yield: 6 Servings

    1 Unbaked 9" pie shell

    MMMMM----------------------PUMPKIN FILLING---------------------------
    1 lg Egg; slightly beaten
    1 c Pumpkin purée
    1/3 c Sugar
    1 tb Heavy cream, Half & Half or
    - whole milk
    1/2 ts Cinnamon; rounded
    1/4 ts Nutmeg
    1/4 ts Ground ginger

    MMMMM-----------------------PECAN FILLING----------------------------
    2 lg Eggs; slightly beaten
    2/3 c Light corn syrup (Karo)
    1/2 c Sugar
    3 tb Butter; melted
    1/2 ts Vanilla extract
    1 c Chopped pecans *

    * I've made this with (English) walnuts, as well. Tried
    it once with Black Walnuts but the pie was not so

    This is an excellent pie. The layers remain separate
    and distinct, and the flavors compliment each other

    Set oven @ 375ºF/190ºC.

    For the pumpkin layer, combine 1 egg, pumpkin, 1/3 c
    sugar, cream, cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger. Spread gently
    over bottom of unbaked pie shell.

    For the pecan layer, combine 2 eggs, corn syrup, 1/2 c
    sugar, butter and vanilla. Stir in pecans. Gently spoon
    mixture over pumpkin layer in pie shell.

    OPTIONAL: Place a layer of half nuts on top of the pie
    before placing in the oven.

    Bake for 50 minutes.
