Honey Pecan Pumpkin Pie Recipe
- 1 medium sugar pumpkin, seeded and halved
- ¾ cup honey
- 1 ¼ teaspoons ground cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1 teaspoon ground cloves
- ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 2 cups heavy cream
- 3 eggs, beaten
- 2 (9 inch) unbaked deep dish pie crusts
- ¾ cup chopped pecans
step 1: Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Place pumpkin halves cut side down on a medium baking sheet, and cover with foil. Bake 90 minutes, or until flesh is easily mashed with a fork. Cool, scoop pumpkin flesh from shell, and mash.
step 2: Increase oven temperature to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
step 3: In a medium bowl, mix mashed pumpkin, honey, cinnamon, ginger, cloves, nutmeg, and salt. Gradually blend in heavy cream and eggs. Pour into crusts, and top with pecans.
step 4: Bake pies in the preheated oven 50 minutes, or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
