At last, a delicious resolution to the pumpkin vs pecan pie battle! While I have never felt that either pie was worthy of all the hype, it appears they simply needed to be combined in order to achieve their full potential. And there you have it, a vegan pumpkin pecan pie that’s as beautiful to look at as it is delectable to eat.
Straight pumpkin pie strikes me as monotonous in texture and flavor, while standard pecan pie tends to be tooth-achingly sweet However, when I brought them together in one crust, the two fillings seemed to accentuate one another’s strengths, while diminish- ing any negative aspects The pecans do have a more dominant presence, but a dollop of pumpkin crème topping allows both flavors to have an equal turn in the spotlight Who says you can’t make everyone happy?
