I hated pumpkin pie until I had this one. Now, I will eat no other. This is the best pumpkin pie EVER.

Streusel Topped Pumpkin Pie Recipe

This recipe is by far the holiday family favorite at our house. Gramma Marilyn made it for our Thanksgiving Dinner back in 1998, and it is a regular on our table every year without fail. Without. fail.

Previously, I had never been a fan of pumpkin pie. Too slimy. But, this pie has a graham cracker crust and a crunchy, sweet, nutty top, which offset the smooth custard and make for a great combination.

The ingredients usually go on sale every fall and aside from the egg and butter, they are all pantry stable, so you can stock up and always have what you need for a fantastic pie. We like to serve it with freshly whipped cream. Oh my! This is a Pumpkin Pie you can make all year long as far as I’m concerned.

  1. Your pie looks great.

    I am so excited – I dislike pumpkin but dh loves it and I happen to have two cans sitting in pantry that have been taunting me for a year. Just checked the date and I’m ready to roll! Now I will wait patiently for the perfect recipe. Maybe one without pumpkin in it 🙂 j/k. My family will thank you for this later.

    I don’t have any pumpkin recipes, but I am enjoying perusing other ladies’ recipes! Thanks Fishmama for the Pumpkin Carnival 🙂

    And now I want to read that book…I am going to borrow it from the library 🙂

  4. Your pie recipe sounds really good. Can’t wait to see what everyone else is sharing.

    I posted a scone recipe as well as a pumpkin butter recipe that goes along with the scones.

    So I made the Pumkins Bars (cake) from #1…. it is a huge hit. I even love it, and as I said before, I’m not a pumpkin fan. Yummy. The cream cheese frosting is perfect for this. DH has declared that I have to make this every year.

    So many more recipes to try – only one more can… what to do?

  6. I made this Creamy Pumpkin Pasta recipe the other day.

    I substituted milk for the cream and it was still very creamy. I used fresh pumpkin puree. It was really awesome, my kids loved it too.

  7. FishMama says

    So many great choices. Where does one start?

    Jennifer, thanks for reporting in. Mrs. Q, let us know how your cooking goes. Tamara, thanks for a main dish – did it taste sweet?

  8. I did not think it tasted sweet. I do not like to mix sweet and savory together in general (like pork and apples for example) so I think it would have bothered me if it were sweet. It may depend somewhat on your pumpkin. My husband had no idea there was pumpkin in it, he just thought is was some sort of creamy cheese sauce.

  9. Oops – I should add that I left out the nutmeg – I think of sweets when I think of nutmeg.

    And while I am at it, I made one other change to the recipe besides substituting milk for cream, I used parmesan instead of romano. Definitely don’t skip the cheese on top!

    Ok,now I am done!

    Just made the streusel-topped pumpkin pie – YUM. Hubbs, who isn't a pumpkin pie fan because he thinks it's lacks flavor (huh??) LOVES it. I thought it would be too sweet with the brown sugar topping, but it's a perfect blend & very very tasty!

    Thx for sharing!
