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.
Pumpkin Pie Crumble
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.
Tips for Making Pumpkin Pie Crumble
- 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.
- If you'd like to make your own, see how to make whipped cream here on Spend with Pennies.
