Thanksgiving Twofer Pie

This week’s Tuesdays with Dorie recipe was very timely: Thanksgiving Twofer pie, which is a combo of pecan pie and pumpkin pie. We were even given a special dispensation that allowed us to post our results after Tuesday. Vibi of La Casserole Carree selected the Thanksgiving Twofer Pie this week. She has the recipe on her blog in both French and English…truly a twofer!


This pie was relatively easy to make (aside from the number of dishes I had to wash afterwards 😉 ).  I took the pie to my family’s thanksgiving celebration. I wasn’t too excited with the results. It looked fine, but I would’ve like the pumpkin filling to be a little firmer. The slices collapsed when moved to the serving dishes. Plus the flavoring was too mild. Similar to the Pumpkin Whoopie Pies I made last month, I found the pumpkin flavor to be too subtle and would’ve liked it kicked up a notch.

  1. It looks pretty, so hopefully others enjoyed it? Maybe you’ll like next week’s recipe better.

  2. It certainly looks yummy! Glad to know that it could use some extra punch (I haven’t made mine yet!)

  3. Looks great! Too bad you didn’t enjoy it. 😦
