Streusel Pumpkin Pie

Basic pumpkin pie is good, but we think this dressed-up version is even better. Plenty of pecans add a nutty crunch to the pastry and the streusel topping. It's a perfect dessert for Thanksgiving or any time you want to end a dinner with something special. -Bertha Johnson, Indianapolis, Indiana

    This pie was tasty. When a recipe makes 2 9 in pies, i use 1 deep dish and 1 regular plate. The batter was skimpy and so was the streusel. Next time I make them I will double everything.

    YES I would make this pie again even though I changed it a little for my taste. I used a graham cracker crust. I added cinnamon to the filling and added more cinnamon to the streusel. I just love cinnamon. I have never been a measurer, I get a gut feeling as to how much recipes take. I have been wrong before but this time I wasnt. My fiance L-O-V-E-D this pie for his birthday. Thank you

    Absolutly loved this recipe! Husband and I nearly fought over the last slice! Will make again and not just for the holidays! Made my own pumpkin pie filling with home canned pumpkin and homeade pumpkin pie spice (recipe found here at TOH) Very good tasting!

    This is the pumpkin pie my family asks me to make each year. It is so good and a nice twist on the traditional pie recipe. Good served with some whipped topping of course.

    This pie is amazing and it is a favorite of my 8 year old sons to make...I wouldn't change a single thing about this recipe!

    I've always loved pecan pie. So, pecans in the crust and pecan streusel topping -- that's all the temptation I needed to give this recipe a try. I added a tablespoon of pumpkin pie spice to the filling and it was wonderful.

    This is a good twist on plain pumpkin pie. My family really likes it and it has become our favorite fall pie. It is good with sweet potatoes, instead of pumpkin too.
