TWD -- Twofer Thanksgiving Pie

I am definitely late posting all of my blogs this month, but there's a good reason.   There's also a good reason why I didn't put much effort into the presentation of this pie as well as my Daring Baker's challenge this month.  That reason will be posted shortly.  Anyway, I made this pie for Thanksgiving.  We had to tell my grandma not to bring her typical array of pies (pumpkin and pecan) because I was making a pie for my blog.  I think she understood.  This pie is, as the name implies, two for one -- pumpkin and pecan pie combo.  It was really pretty good!  I'm not a big pumpkin or pecan pie person, but I did enjoy this pie.  I made a couple of changes, due to a lack of certain ingredients (also caused by the object in the post that I will soon divulge).  Instead of using dark rum, I used Brandy, and instead of cream I used 1/3 + 1/6 cup of milk and 1/3 + 1/6 cup of butter.  If you're interested in making this recipe, check out Dorie Greenspan's Baking book.


  1. Sounds like a lot of substitution going on - I'm glad it turned out! I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving.

  2. Thank you so much Melissa, for participating with me this week! I'm glad to read that you enjoyed the pie... but then again, I could you not, with such beauty!
