This Streusel Pumpkin Pie recipe has got it all. It’s crunchy on top, smooth and velvety in the middle, and surrounded by a flaky all-butter crust. The result is nothing short of irresistible.
For the first time ever, I’m talking about pumpkin pie before we’ve hit mid-October. That’s a big deal. Usually, I’m the girl who’s unfashionably late to the season and doesn’t get around to recipes with any sort of pumpkin ingredients until the week of Thanksgiving.
For once, I’m ahead of the game. Not really. Only where pie is concerned. Actually, holiday pie recipes have already started floating around Instagram. It just keeps getting earlier and earlier, amiright?
Even if pumpkin recipes have already hit the season’s scene with a bang, I’ve got a super fresh recipe for all us pie lovers today. The yummiest Streusel Pumpkin Pie is here, seeking to be devoured all holiday long.
This streusel pumpkin pie is an epic combination of all the good stuff. Even people who profess not to like pumpkin pie may change their minds with this one. I’ve already met a few non-pumpkin eaters who have devoured huge slices of this streusel pumpkin pie.
This pie’s got it all: A flaky, all-butter crust, a it’s velvety delicious filling, and crunchy streusel topping. It’s the perfect holiday pie to keep in your recipe book forever…
Tips for the best streusel pumpkin pie recipe
- The crust is everything. Go with all butter; no shortening. Butter provides that fabulous flavor every crust craves. Keep the sliced butter cubes cold and work it into the dough with clean hands. It’s kinda messy but also cathartic. Plus, it’s the easiest way to cut in cold butter.
- The filling is everything. Use pure pumpkin puree plus plenty of fall spices. We aren’t shy with the cinnamon here. With nutmeg, ginger, and pure maple syrup in the filling…it can’t be anything but totally scrumptious.
- The topping is everything. It’s a wondrous harmony of brown sugar, cinnamon, and toasted pecans. Our peeps love this topping so much, we could eat it with a spoon. Btw, this streusel topping is marvelous over Maple Cinnamon Baked Oatmeal (Gluten-Free) and Baked Pumpkin French Toast Casserole too.
👉🏼 You’ll please forgive me for raving about all 3 layers with equal enthusiasm?
Really, I couldn’t choose just one layer to lavish affection over. It’s the combination of the 3 amazing layers that give this streusel pumpkin pie its top position on the dessert table.
Enjoy your slice 🙂
