In the afternoon, I prebaked the crust. For some reason it shrunk up a bit and the edges were alarmingly dark when it was done. No matter, I just trimmed them off.
In the early evening, I made the fillings. Pumpkin pie on the bottom, a layer of pecans and then the sugary pecan pie top. As soon as I started to add the top layer, it mixed with the bottom. And as for keeping the pecans in the middle? Not going to happen. No amount of poking was going to keep those babies down.
Ok, into the oven. I baked according to the instructions and pulled it out after the last 35 minutes. Then put it back in for 10 more minutes. Then put it back in for 10 more minutes. Then put it back in for 10 more minutes. Then put it back in for 10 more minutes. So, approximately 30 minutes past Dorie's outside time, my pie was done.
