Caramel-Pecan Pumpkin Pie

Caramel- Pecan Pumpkin Pie (modified from Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook)

1 pie crust (use store bought or make your own. I use this recipe)
2 slightly beaten eggs
1 (15oz) can pumpkin
1/4 cup milk (I used yogurt)
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 T. all-purpose flour
1 tsp. vanilla
1/4 tsp. salt
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1/2 tsp. allspice

1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup chopped pecans (I used walnuts)
2 T. butter, softened

Prepare crust and set aside. In a large bowl stir together (I used my mixer on low speed) eggs, pumpkin and milk. Stir in the sugar, flour, and spices. Pour pumpkin mixture into pie crust. To prevent overbrowning, cover edge of pie with foil. Bake in a 375 degree oven for 25 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a medium bowl stir together brown sugar, nuts, and butter until combined. Remove foil from pie. Sprinkle brown sugar mixture over top of pie. Bake for 20 minutes more or until knife inserted near the center comes out clean and topping is golden and bubbly. Cool on a wire rack. Cover and refrigerate within 2 hours.
