Praline Pumpkin Pie

Pumpkin Pie is my dad’s favorite type of pie. In fact, I really can’t eat it without thinking of him and its always far more enjoyable eating a slice in the presence of his company.

This particular pumpkin pie recipe is adapted from food dot com with a twist from my grandma. She adds a praline layer both beneath and on top of pumpkin pie filling which adds a delicious flavor and added texture to each bite. It truly makes each bite perfection.

If you want to change up the way you traditionally do pumpkin pie, this is the perfect recipe to do so! It has added flare that everyone will love! It would be a huge hit for Thanksgiving or anytime during this holiday season!

    I'm drooling over this pie, Nikki! I never thought to put praline on top and bottom of the filling. And sweetened condensed milk in the filling is brilliant!

    This was super easy and very delicious!! I only made a few swaps which lead to extra liquid in the end but it set up beautifully and tasted like heaven! I swapped pumpkin spice since I didn't have cloves, egg beaters, used 1 can of pumpkin and 1 can reduced fat condensed milk. I think if I bought a "deep" 2in pie crust I could use all the mix! Definitely on my Thanksgiving memu!!
