Ingredients

Streusel Crust and Crumble

  • 3/4 cup pecans, toasted and coarsely chopped
  • 1.5 cups flour
  • 2/3 cup butter, chilled and cut into 1/2" pieces
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg, fresh grated or 1/4 teaspoon ground
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Pumpkin Pie Filling

  • 2 eggs
  • 15 ounces pumpkin
  • 12 ounces evaporated milk
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon, ground
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger, ground
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg, fresh grated
  • 1/4 teaspoon cloves, ground

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Spread the pecan halves or pieces on a large baking sheet.
  • Bake for 10 minutes, stirring several times, until the pecans are slightly darker in color and fragrant.
  • Increase the oven temperature to 425 degrees.
  • In a large mixing bowl, add the slightly cooled, chopped pecans and the remainder of the streusel ingredients. Use a pastry cutter or two knives to cut the cold butter into the dry ingredients until the mixture resembles course crumbs.
  • Press HALF of the mixture into the bottom of a 9" or 10" pie plate, keeping a consistent thickness throughout.
  • In a medium size mixing bowl, whisk together the pumpkin pie filling unil well combined.
  • Pour into the crust and bake for 15 minutes.
  • Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees.
  • Placing a large baking sheet on the rack below the pie to catch crumbs, sprinkle the other half of the streusel mixture on top of the pie.
  • Bake for 35-45 minutes until the center is set, and a knife inserted into the center comes out relatively clean, and the streusel is golden.
  • Cool to room temperature to serve.

Notes

Pie plates can have a variance of depth.  Depending on what size/depth used, there may be a small amount of extra pumpkin pie filling.
