No, that's not an error; black pepper isn't just for savory applications, such as seasoning meats and side dishes, or adding depth and a little kick to soups and stews. Much like salt, this ingredient also works as a way to enhance other flavors in a dish, as well as provide a unique flavor all its own that works surprisingly well in sweet, sugary baked goods.

Freshly ground black peppercorns impart a spicy, slightly citrusy note that, when mixed with the medley of warm seasonings that go into a spiced pumpkin pie, beautifully balances those deep flavors. As little as a pinch of ground black pepper into the spice mix will impart a subtle hint of heat that won't overpower the rich, sweet flavors of the rest of the pie.
