    Streusel Pumpkin Pie

    streusel pumpkin pie

    Excerpted with permission from Taste of Home Recipes Across America: 735 of the Best Recipes from Across the Nation.

    By Taste of Home 
    Basic pumpkin pie is good, but we think this dressed-up version is way better! Plenty of pecans add a nutty crunch to both the pastry and the streusel topping. It's a perfect dessert for Thanksgiving or any time you want to end a dinner with something really special.

    -- Bertha Johnson, Indianapolis, Indiana

    Prep: 20 Min.
    Bake: 40 Min. + Cooling 
    Makes: 2 Pies (6-8 Servings)

    2 cups all-purpose flour
    ¼ cup finely chopped pecans
    1 teaspoon salt
    ⅔ cup plus 1 tablespoon shortening
    4 to 5 tablespoons water


    1 can (30 ounces) pumpkin pie filling
    1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
    1 egg, lightly beaten


    ½ cup packed brown sugar
    ¼ cup all-purpose flour
    ¼ cup chopped pecans
    ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
    3 tablespoons cold butter

    1. In a bowl, combine flour, pecans and salt; cut in the shortening until crumbly. Gradually add water, tossing with a fork until a ball forms. Divide dough in half. Roll out each portion to fit a 9-in. pie plate; place pastry in pie plates. Flute edges and set aside.

    2. Combine pie filling, milk and egg; pour into pastry shells. For topping, combine brown sugar, flour, pecans and cinnamon in a small bowl; cut in butter until crumbly. Sprinkle over filling. Cover edges of pastry loosely with foil.

    3. Bake at 375° for 40-45 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack for 2 hours. Refrigerate until serving.
