I love pecans, but, I think that maybe the walnuts would taste better with the pumpkin.

Shoot! I thought this was going to be an easy question!!! I think I would have to try the recipe with each one and taste it to see which would taste better.

go with the group middie, they know best.
I said pecans because I don't really like walnuts in anything.... :)

I would have to say walnuts, they taste about the same, same texture, and they are less expensive.
