Streusel Pumpkin Pie

This pie recipe is different. It has all of the classic pumpkin pie flavors with the addition of a crunchy streusel topping.

And when I say streusel, I mean a crumbly spiced topping that has chopped pecans, cinnamon, flour, and butter. 

It is a dreamy combination. The sweetness of the pumpkin pie paired with the slightly salty topping is heavenly and hard not to love. A very fun twist on a classic pie recipe.

Streusel Topped Pumpkin Pie

Streusel Pumpkin Pie Recipe

Ingredients for this pie recipe:

  • Pumpkin Puree– Make sure your can says only “pumpkin” in the ingredients. You want to avoid pumpkin pie filling. 
  • Evaporated Milk– You can find this in the baking aisle of most grocers.
  • Granulated Sugar- Also referred to as white sugar. 
  • Brown Sugar– The addition of brown sugar gives a wonderful molasses flavor to the pie. 
  • Eggs– Large eggs at room temperature.
  • Vanilla Extract– Always use pure vanilla extract and not imitation. 
  • Spices- A majority of the flavor in this recipe comes from the added spices. Cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and salt are what add the perfect balance of flavors and enhance the pumpkin taste.
  • Pie Shells– You can use store bought or make your own. 
  • Flour– All-Purpose flour goes into the topping. You could substitute this with your favorite flour if needed. 
  • Butter– I like to use salted butter for the topping, since it is made with pecans, but you are welcome to use unsalted and season to taste. 
  • Pecans– Chopped pecans are what our streusel topping is made of. 

Difference between pumpkin puree and pumpkin pie filling:

Pumpkin puree is plain pumpkin that has been steamed and blended into a puree. It has no additional ingredients. 

Pumpkin pie filling has all of those classic spices you would see added into a pie. Sometimes you will even see added sugars.

For this recipe, I like to use plain pumpkin puree and add spices independently. This allows for a little control over what goes into the pie allowing us to adjust and flavor as needed.
