Praline Pumpkin Pie

The first of my pumpkin pie series will be the delicious Praline Pumpkin Pie. It has a thin layer of pecan praline on the bottom that gives the pie a nice surprise. Pumpkin and praline go so well together, this is a natural twist on the old tradition. Or you could say you are putting two Thanksgiving favorites into one wonderful pie. I definitely recommend this recipe from my book Old-Fashioned Pumpkin Recipes by Bear Wallow Books. (see links in previous post)

Praline Pumpkin Pie

1/3 cup chopped pecans
1/3 cup brown sugar
3 tablespoons soft butter

Combine these ingredients and press into bottom of 9" unbaked pie shell. Prick sides with fork. Bake in 450 degree oven 10 minutes and cool.

2 eggs slightly beaten
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon flour
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp ginger
2 cups cooked pumpkin
1 14oz can condensed milk

Mix together eggs, sugars, flour, salt and spices. Blend in pumpkin. Gradually add mil. Mix well. Pour into baked pie shell and bake at 350 degrees 50 to 60 minutes or until knife inserted in filling comes out clean.
