  • 22 ounce can pumpkin puree I know this is a weird measurement. It 1 ½ cans pumpkin puree.
  • 3 eggs beaten
  • 1 ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon ground ginger
  • ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
  • teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1 ¼ cup evaporated milk


  • ¾ cup chopped pecans
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • cup honey
  • 1 pie dough


  • Make or buy your pie crust. I used half of the partial wheat recipe and it was delicious with the pumpkin and praline! Make sure and make it in advance. I like to refrigerate mine overnight.
  • Spray or butter your 9 inch pie pan to prep for the dough. Roll ½ recipe of pie dough into pie pan, leaving several inches over the edge. Trim or roll the edge, as shown in video. I made an extra thick outer crust, as this is how my husband likes it. A flaky crust is his favorite. Crimp edges as you choose. Place in refrigerator while you prepare the filling.
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • Mix all ingredients in medium sized bowl. I like to mix it with a whisk until it is smooth, but no need to over mix.
  • Pour filling into prepared pie shell. Place in oven. Bake for about 40-45 minutes.
  • While it is baking, prep your praline. Mix all ingredients and set aside.
  • Remove from oven and drop praline on top. You don't want to drag it across the top when you are putting it on, as this will tear up the pie. I just like to drop it on all over the top. Press into pie lightly.
  • Place back in oven and continue to bake for another 10-15 minutes.
  • Remove and allow to cool. I like to chill mine overnight. Either way, you are going to love this! Now, sit back and enjoy. You just nailed an amazing pumpkin pie!
