Learn How it Works...
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup cold Land O Lakes® Butter, cut into chunks
4 to 5 tablespoons ice cold water
Pumpkin Pie Filling
1 cup canned pumpkin
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/4 cup Land O Lakes® Heavy Whipping Cream
1 large Land O Lakes® Egg
1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1/4 teaspoon salt
Pecan Pie Filling
1/2 cup maple syrup
2 tablespoons Land O Lakes® Butter
3 large Land O Lakes® Eggs (yolks only)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup toasted chopped pecans
9 pecan halves
Combine flour and 1/8 teaspoon salt in bowl; cut in 1/3 cup butter with pastry blender or fork until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in enough cold water with fork just until flour is moistened. Shape crust into ball and flatten slightly. Roll out dough on lightly floured surface into 12-inch circle. Fold into quarters. Place dough into 9-inch pie pan; unfold, pressing firmly against bottom and side. Trim crust to 1/2 inch from edge of pan; crimp or flute edge. Refrigerate while preparing fillings.
Combine all pumpkin pie filling ingredients in bowl; whisk until well combined. Set aside.
Adjust oven rack to lowest position. Heat oven to 450°F.
Heat maple syrup, 1/2 cup brown sugar and 1/4 cup whipping cream in small saucepan over medium heat 3 minutes or until sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat; let cool 5 minutes. Whisk in 2 tablsepoons butter and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Add egg yolks and vanilla; whisk to combine.
Remove pie crust from refrigerator. Create aluminum foil barrier by folding 11-inch piece of foil in half lengthwise and in half again. Bend each end to fit in pie pan.
Tip: Prepping Crust
Sprinkle chopped pecans into one half of pie. Pour pumpkin filling into other half, using one hand to support foil. Pour pecan pie filling over pecans. Place pecan halves around edge of pecan pie filling for decoration. Carefully remove foil barrier by pulling it straight up out of pie.
Tip: Filling Pie
Place pie in oven. Immediately reduce temperature to 325°F; do not open oven door. Bake 53-58 minutes or until edge is set and middle is slightly jiggly. Remove from oven; let stand 2-3 hours or until completely cool before serving.
