Kathie Lee & Hoda: Magnolia Bakery Pumpkin Praline Pie Recipe Directions
- Cut butter into 1/2” cubes for the crust.
- Pulse flour with sugar and salt in a food processor.
- Put water and ice in a measuring cup.
- Pulse butter into the flour mixture until it creates the texture of small peas.
- Slowly add in about 1/3 cup of water, but do not overmix.
- Transfer dough mixture to a clean prep surface to mix by hand; add 1 tbsp water if needed.
- Divide dough into two even discs (about 11.5 oz each). Wrap in plastic and chill at least two hours.
- Roll one dough disc on a flour-dusted prep surface to about 11” in diameter and 1/8” thick.
- Fit dough over a 9” pie pan. Cover with parchment and add baking weights. Chill crust for about 30 minutes.
- Par-bake the chilled shell for 15 minutes at 350 F.
- Mix pumpkin with sugar, milk, nutmeg, butter, maple syrup, cinnamon, and cloves.
- Work in eggs, one by one, followed by heavy cream. Be careful not to overmix.
- Remove par-baked pie from the oven. Take out parchment and baking weights.
- Turn temperature to 425 F.
- Fill crust with pie filling and set it on a sheet gray.
- Return to oven, baking 10 minutes. Reduce temperature to 350 F and bake another 40 minutes, or until set. Use foil if needed to protect the crust from burning.
- Meanwhile, toss pecans with sugar and salt.
- Mix with vanilla and corn syrup.
- Scatter topping over the baked pie filling and sprinkle with sugar.
- Bake about 11 minutes, until pecans are aromatic.
