Nothing says fall quite like pumpkin pecan recipes. Pumpkin and pecan are definitely my two very favorite fall flavors. While I love each by itself, I really love them paired up in sweet and savory recipes. Pumpkin pie will never be the same now that I’ve had Dorie Greenspan’s two pumpkin pecan pie recipes. Sigh. So many tasty combinations. Time to get to the grocery store and stock up on pumpkin and pecans so you can make each of these recipes and decide which one is your very favorite. I gathered up a bunch of pumpkin pecan recipes that are tried-and-true family favorites, along with others that have caught my eye. They are sure to be at the top of your must-make list this fall.
