A classic pumpkin pie topped with crunchy, delicious streusel!
Monday through Friday this week, I have been sharing a variety of pie recipes for my first ever “Pie Week,” and I thought this was the perfect finale to finish it off!
To begin, preheat your oven to 375 degrees.You’ll need a 9 inch, deep dish pie crust as well. Have that waiting.
Prep the streusel topping. In a bowl, combine 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1/2 c rolled oats, 1/2 c chopped pecans, 1/4 c flour, 1/2 tsp cinnamon and 1/2 tsp nutmeg. Give those a stir. Add in 1/4 c room temperature butter.
Mix those until you have a crumbly mixture. Set it aside.
In your mixing bowl combine 1/2 c sugar, 1/2 c brown sugar, 1 Tb flour, 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon, 1 tsp nutmeg, 1/2 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp ginger, 1/4 tsp cloves. Give those a stir to combine.
In a small dish, beat two eggs, and then add them to the mixing bowl.
Add in 15 ounces of pumpkin.
And add in 12 ounces of evaporated milk. Mix well.
Pour into a 9 inch, deep dish pie crust.
Now for the topping.
Sprinkle your streusel evenly all over the top.
Because this bakes for such a long time, you have to protect your crust. I have one of these great little pie shields, but strips of foil work just fine. Take them off about 15 minute before the pie is done baking. Bake for 1 hour and 15-25 minutes or until the pie tests done when a butter knife is inserted near the center.
Let the pie cool for at least 2 hours before cutting.
Serve your pie topped with whipped cream, or just as it is. Enjoy!
