Pumpkin Crumb Pie Recipe
We’ve got a delicious recipe for you today…and a story to go along with it! My brother was learning about Pi in math, so he wanted us to make a pumpkin pie for him. When we brought him the pie, he was a bit annoyed that it wasn’t traditional pumpkin pie.
We did make him pumpkin pie, but we added something extra on top to make it a little something special. What’s the big deal here? My brother evidently didn’t like the change. He did end up eating it though, and he fought over it with my sister the next day. I guess he decided it wasn’t that bad.
Pumpkin Crunch Dessert
This pumpkin crumb pie recipe is a mixture of our family’s 2 favorite pumpkin recipes- one is pumpkin pie, and the other is simply called Pumpkin Dessert. Pumpkin Dessert is my favorite. It’s basically what’s on top of this pie, minus the crust.
But there is a little argument in our house as to which is better. Traditional Pumpkin Pie or Pumpkin Dessert. We decided to try to appease both by putting them together. The results? An amazing pumpkin crunch dessert.
Layered Pumpkin Pie
This pie is one of those desserts that would just be simply fantastic with a bowl of vanilla ice cream. Mmmm. Cold or hot, you’ll love it. It has 4 basic layers:
- Pie crust
- Pumpkin mixture
- Cake mix
- Butter and nuts
You can make it easily by using a store bought pie crust, or you can use your own favorite homemade crust. Whatever your favorite way is, I urge you to try this great pumpkin crumb pie.
