Flaming Pecan Pumpkin Pie

Stacia Osborn


This came out of one of those 1950s spiral-bound community cookbooks.

It is soooooo good! I am certainly excited to have found this in my recipes just in time for fall!

...I think this was the first pie I made my husband (then boyfriend) years ago. See how delicious this pie is?
