2 Cups chopped pecans
5 Tb melted salted butter
2 Cups organic pumpkin puree
1/2 Cup softened cream cheese

In a single-serve blender or food processor, blend nuts and butter in pulse mode into a very fine texture being careful to not over-blend into a nut butter
Spread the nut mixture over the pie dish, covering the bottom and pushing up the sides with any excess. Be mindful to press firmly so crust well congealed
