because every dessert is a little decadent

Thanksgiving Spiced Pumpkin and Pecan Pie

This pie recipe uses pumpkin spice instant pudding and that is a variety, which seems to appear over Halloween so you might want to stock up on it! There are lots of great Halloween recipes, such as spiced pumpkin pie and other types of pumpkin pie recipes, but this spiced pumpkin and pecan pie is something extra special. If you have fresh pumpkin to use up, you can cook that and mash it, instead of using canned pumpkin. Do not use pumpkin flesh from big jack-o-lantern pumpkins though. Smaller pumpkins have sweeter flesh.

Pumpkin, caramel, and pecans combine beautiful in this mouthwatering pie recipe and, once you have tried it, you will definitely want to make this wonderful dish again because it is too good to only eat at Halloween. If you like rich, sticky, and indulgent pie recipes, this turtle pumpkin pie should be right up your street. It might not be so good for anyone with dentures but it is divine for everyone else!

Cranberry gelatin is another variety that only makes an appearance in the festive season so you might want to stock up on that as well, since there are plenty of cranberry gelatin recipes you can try too. Cranberry gelatin is available throughout November and December.
