Tuesdays with Dorie: Thanksgiving Twofer Pie


Happy Thanksgiving!  I know it’s a couple days early, but Tuesdays with Dorie is already celebrating with the Thanksgiving Twofer Pie, chosen by Vibi of La casserole carree.  I was instantly intrigued by this dessert because of the unusual combination.  I’m not crazy about traditional pumpkin pie on its own, but I love pecan pie, so I was excited to see how this would turn out.  I brought this to our dinner group for the dessert, and I felt like I was taking a bit of a risk in serving it.  I was afraid that the combination would be to strange for their tastes and that no one would like it.  I was pleased to discover that I got the opposite reaction of what I was expecting!


Everyone really loved this dessert.  There was only one piece left- one that they saved for me since I was the one who baked it 🙂  The pumpkin and pecan flavors were nicely balanced.  I didn’t think that either was too overpowering.  People had just the reaction Dorie intended.  There is often both pumpkin and pecan pie for dessert at Thanksgiving and it’s hard to choose, but now you don’t have to!  You get the best of both worlds with this twist on two classic desserts.

The recipe also came together easily.  I didn’t have any trouble preparing it or baking it.  It baked up nicely in the time Dorie suggested.  Thanks Vibi for choosing this.  I’m so glad I got to try it.  You can visit her blog for the recipe.  Be sure to also visit the Tuesdays with Dorie blog to see all the wonderful Twofers out there!  Have a safe and happy Thanksgiving!
