It’s holiday season, but more importantly, it’s pie season! There’s always a debate on Thanksgiving about which pie to make and which pie is better, but let me settle that for you by combining my two favorite pies together with this paleo pumpkin pecan pie.

Paleo Pumpkin Pecan Pie Recipe

I usually tend to reach for pumpkin pie first, but I do love the crunchy texture of pecan pie as well. In this recipe, pumpkin pie filling is layered under the pecan pie filling, and the result is so ridiculously delicious and satisfying.

It has the smooth velvety pumpkin on the bottom and the sweet and nutty pecan halves on the top, all on top of a flaky paleo pie crust that’s a winner every time.

Keep the Crust from Burning

Since there’s a double layer to this paleo pumpkin pecan pie, it does take longer to cook than other pies. Because of this, the crust could darken and burn while cooking, so I do recommend that you cover the crust with aluminum foil. Also, for the last 20 minutes of baking time, you’ll need to bake the whole thing covered so the filling can cook through and the pecan topping won’t turn blacka.

Make It Ahead of Time

Since holiday hosting can be stressful and overwhelming, this paleo pumpkin pecan pie will be a dessert that’ll make your life a bit easier because it can be made 3 days in advance! Honestly, when I’m hosting Thanksgiving, the last thing I wanna think about is how I can fit another dish in the oven. Having things like this pie that I can make or prep ahead of time is always welcome.

What’s your favorite pie? I think this one might be my new favorite, and I’ll be making it over and over again every year!

    Pumpkin and pecan is not a combination we usually see, but they go well together! I love the crunch of the nuts along with the creaminess of pumpkin!
