Pecan Crusted Pumpkin Cake (pie)

I discovered this recipe while attending a class for new wives called Apples of Gold. Table Rock Fellowship made this class available to 12 young women back in ’03, & I was chosen as one -to meet once a week, have a cooking lesson, a Bible lesson from one of the 4 women mentoring us, and have a good time learning how to be the best wife you can be, and are called to be.  This class brought a new light to cooking & baking (for me) and made me excited to try all kinds of new recipes. Every week we were literally served a 3 course meal by other women (singles or college ladies) in a formal setting & had to sit by new people each time, but the tables had little conversation-starter cards so we we weren’t awkward. It was a great experience. I’d recommend every church offer an “Apples of Gold” course once a year.
