This Pumpkin Pie Crumble combines the best of two classic fall desserts. The creamy pumpkin pie filling, topped with a crisp buttery oat crumble, is nothing short of autumn glory. Serve it alone or, with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or fresh whipped cream.
Easy Pumpkin Pie Crumble Recipe
Apples, pumpkins, pears and cranberries encapsulate everything to love about fall flavors. For me, apple season can only be eclipsed by pumpkin season. The small window when these goodies are traditionally enjoyed is way too short, if you ask me. Fill the house with the aroma of fresh baked pumpkin bread, cranberry butter cake, or cream cheese filled pumpkin roll and watch the family come running to the kitchen.
How to Make the Best Pumpkin Pie Crumble Recipe
- Ingredients you'll need to make homemade Pumpkin Pie Crumble: Canned pumpkin puree, heavy cream, granulated sugar, light brown sugar, all purpose flour, salt, pumpkin pie spice, large eggs and vanilla extract.
- For the crumb topping you'll need: Quick cooking or old fashioned oats, all purpose flour, pumpkin pie spice or ground cinnamon and cold butter that's been cubed.
- Kitchen gadgets you'll need: Mixing bowls, measuring cups and spoons, a hand mixer or a stand mixer, a pastry blender or food processor to cut the butter into the ingredients for the crumb topping and a 13 x 9 inch baking dish.
- I utilize canned pumpkin for this recipe but, you can make your own pumpkin puree, if you're feeling resourceful.
- If you'd like to add ½ cup chopped pecans or walnuts to the crumb topping, you can without any other adjustments.
- To save time, the filling can be prepared in advance and poured into the baking dish. Cover and store chilled thn, top with the crumb topping just before baking.
- You can use either quick cooking or old fashioned oats for the topping, I don't recommend using instant oats.
- For the most well-rounded flavor, pumpkin pie spice is the best to use for the filling. It's abundant in the fall, and the combination of spice is simply delicious.
- Enjoy this crumble as is, with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or fresh whipped cream.
- Store leftover Pumpkin Pie Crumble chilled in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Reheat in single servings in the microwave.

Made this today. I DOUBLED the CRUMBLE and it was a delicious call. I added chopped pecans too and SO GOOD!
I didn't have cream so I used Evaporated Milk in place if and it turned out well!

any way this can be made ahead of time and frozen...then brought to room temp before serving??
If you freeze this, it should be thawed in the refrigerator overnight. You would need to reheat it in a 350°F oven to re-crisp the crumble topping. Otherwise, to make it in advance, fully assemble the day before and chill then, bake the day you want to serve it.
Tasty and great food. This is one of my favorite foods. I did it yesterday and I had a great meal. I made this for fun. Can I double this recipe? Is it still effective?
You can double this recipe, sure.
