To begin making Pumpkin Pecan Pie I dumped some brown sugar and golden flavour Crisco shortening into a mixing bowl.

I used a wooden spoon to blend them together and break up any lumps before adding corn syrup, pure maple syrup, pure pumpkin puree, vanilla extract, and a bit of salt.

After combining all the ingredients well I added in 3 large eggs.

I beat in the eggs with the wooden spoon until all the the eggs were incorporated into the batter.

When I make a single crust pie I often use a frozen pie shell like the one pictured below.  Feel free to make your own gluten free pie shell.  My recipe for a double crust pie is found at Gluten Free Pastry.

The pastry shells for the pie.

Before pouring the batter into the pie shell I first sprinkled in some chopped pecans.

After spreading the chopped pecans out evenly on the bottom I poured in the batter.

Then I used pecan halves to decorate the top of the pie.

After the pecan halves were in place I gently pushed them into the batter to coat them.

Next I put the pie on a lower rack in a preheated 350F oven for 50 minutes or until it was set.

When baked I removed it from the oven and allowed it to cool and firm up.

Pumpkin Pecan Pie is loaded with seasonal flavour and pecans.

Enjoy it as the perfect ending to your Thanksgiving feast!
