This pie was everyone's favorite!! The only thing I will do different next time is to chop the pecans there really isn't enough time to arrange them prettily & they look kinda like little roaches climbing around!!! Read More

This pie was too sweet for me and the flavor reminded me of a fruitcake rather than the buttery pecan taste I was hoping for. I had a problem with the pecan "struesel" as well mine turned out more like a paste. I love the idea of the two pies combined together though I'll keep searching for the one that fits my tastes more.

This was fantastic! I could not stay away from it. The addition of the orange zest is not to be omitted. It was a delightful addition. I loved the flavor of the pumpkin mixture as well. I will say that I needed a bigger pie pan for this than the 9" store bought crust I went with. This pie deserves a deep dish homemade crust. It is a great treat for the holidays. We will definitely make this again...even if it is just for me. Read More

This tasted delicious but it didn't look very nice. The pecan layer made it hard to cut through the pie. Might make again but chop the pecans. Read More

This recipe was a hit. The only complaint I have was there was too much pumpkin batter to fit into the Deep Dish pie crust. Other than that this pie was a hit and it tastes great! Read More

The flavor was a wonderful with the blend of the orange zest and pumpkin also the kitchen smelled great during prep and cooking.
