Streusel Pumpkin Pie

Total Time

Prep: 20 min. Bake: 40 min. + cooling

Makes

2 pies (8 pieces each)

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

Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped pecans
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2/3 cup plus 1 tablespoon shortening
  • 4 to 5 tablespoons water
  • FILLING:
  • 1 can (30 ounces) pumpkin pie filling
  • 1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 large egg, room temperature, lightly beaten
  • STREUSEL TOPPING:
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3 tablespoons cold butter
  • Whipped cream, optional

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375°. 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. On a lightly floured surface, roll each half of dough to a 1/8-in. thick circle; transfer to 9-in. pie plates; place crust in pie plates. Trim crust and flute edge; set aside.
  2. Combine pie filling, milk and egg; pour into crusts. 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 until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean, 40-45 minutes. Cool on a wire rack for 2 hours. Refrigerate until serving. If desired, serve with whipped cream.
Dough for single-crust pie
Combine 1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour and 1/4 tsp. salt; cut in 1/2 cup cold butter until crumbly. Gradually add 3-5 Tbsp. ice water, tossing with a fork until dough holds together when pressed. Shape into a disk; wrap and refrigerate 1 hour.
