Now that Halloween is officially over it is time foooooorrrr…. PUMPKIN! Haha, actually I made this pie for us to enjoy for our Halloween dinner and could’ve posted it Friday (and I considered doing it too) but I decided that this recipe should officially fall under Thanksgiving instead of getting roped into Halloween. Not all families sit down to traditional Halloween dinners like we do because not all parents make a tradition for every possible holiday (seriously, I have traditions for everything down to Flag Day).

This recipe at first glance can and probably will seem intimidating. Don’t be, it is a TOTAL fake out. I promise, no stand mixer even needed. The pie filling comes together as quickly as you can add the ingredients to the bowl and the streusel is the same. What looks like a giant laundry list is filled with mostly duplicate ingredients. So while the photos may look complicated and the recipe may look like “uhhh…not happening when I have 15 things to cook for Thanksgiving!” this is actually going to be a huge hit while being easy! I promise and c’mon, look at this topping! You can’t resist this… The only pie you'll need on your Thanksgiving dessert table, delicious Pumpkin pie with dark brown sugar topped with a Rich Pecan Streusel topping. Who says you need to choose pumpkin OR pecan pie? How easy? You mix the wet ingredients, then the dry. Add together and add to crust. Mix streusel ingredients and sprinkle on top. No whipping ingredients together in a stand mixer, no pre-baking the streusel or the crust. This pie is easy while making you look like a pro. And when your guests line up at the dessert table to pick what they want to eat they will be wooed by this beauty!

 The pecans are just these beautiful little jewels sitting atop this pie and it is significantly easier to make than my most requested pie I made for clients during the holidays, my double layer Pumpkin Pecan Pie which is half pumpkin pie with a layer of pecan pie baked on top. Fun to make, but much more involved and dare I say not really even better than this one! The oats and dark brown sugar make this recipe a real winner and it just screams holidays!

  1. I have made this pumpkin pie with streusel topping and it is delicious. Great change from the plain pumpkin pie. Never any left. Great recipe will make for many years to come.

    1. It’s so good!! I used a 9 inch pie glass baking dish for this. Sorry for the confusion about the crust too. I used a pre made pie crust and just popped it in the pan. No need to layer anything over the top of the pie once the filling goes in. Hope this helps clear things up!

  2. This looks amazing! I think it’s close enough to pumpkin season for this, I know I can’t wait until Thanksgiving to make it!

  3. This Easy Pumpkin Pecan Streusel Pie is fabulous!!! I made it twice in one week for dinner guest! 
    I would drive three hours away for a very similar pie at a pie shop but feel this pie is just as good or even better!!!

    I omitted the oats and added more pecans, baked with a pie ring crust cover and mid way through covered the middle with a smaller upside down pie pan to protect the pecans from burning. 

    Super YUMMY pie if you take you’re patient. 

    1. I’m happy to save you a 3 hour drive 🙂 Thanks for dropping by to let me know! I’m so glad you enjoyed it!

  4. I wish people would wait to comment until after they actually make the recipe. I was hoping to read suggestions or at least find out if anyone liked the pie. I made this a couple days ago. It tastes great, especially when warm and with whipped cream on top. I wish the ingredients were listed in the order in which the recipe calls for them, especially since several ingredients are listed more than once. It is also confusing where the recipe gives instructions regarding the dry ingredients when using a homemade crust. I assume it means to put the dry ingredients on top of the pie crust and then pour in the wet ingredients. Also, the recipe calls the streusel a walnut streusel rather than pecan. The only change I made was adding more cinnamon, which I do to every recipe. Next time, I might reduce the amount of quick oats to 1/3 cup, but everyone likes it and said it was much better than a regular pumpkin pie. 

  5. When you top your pumpkin pie with the streusel before you bake it the streusel won’t sink to the bottom?  Should you bake the pie for about 20 minutes and then add the streusel and continue baking until done. 

    1. I’m so sorry your question got caught in my spam filter. I really hope I didn’t mess up your Thanksgiving dessert plans by not getting to it on time 🙁 But to answer you question, no need to worry about it sinking to the bottom. I really hope you gave it a try!

  6. That piece of pie looks like a slice of heaven. I love pumpkin anything. We just made pumpkin ravioli recently and it is AMAZING!

  7. I love serving pumpkin pie at Thanksgiving especially when I’m entertaining. Your recipe, which looks uber delicious, is already on my list to make for the upcoming holiday.

  8. This looks so delicious and easy to make. I will have to get the ingredients so i can make it this weekend.

  9. This looks like an amazing dessert. I will have to try making one this week. I am sure the kids will love it.

  10. I love how you have combined two of my favourite pies so deliciously here! What a fantastic recipe! Pinned – would love for you to share it at the Hearth and Soul Hop, live on my blog now 🙂

  11. OH this look very tasty. I would substitute sweet potatoes for the pumpkin and I’m sure it would be just as good. Thanks for the recipe.

  12. This looks amazing! I want to make this for Thanksgiving this year. I think it will make a great dessert. I’m positive that everyone would love it. Yummy! I’m saving this now.

  13. This looks so delicious. The combination of 2 favourite desserts can’t be beat. I definitely have to add this to my must try list.

  14. Two of my favs-pumpkin and streusel! Saw you on the fellow food blogger map on Food Blogger Central/Facebook and had to stop in for a visit! Your site is a beauty. We are still trying to find our “formula” lol but are having a blast learning as we go! Nice to meet ya on here;o) Please come visit us anytime.

    1. Thanks Ash! That group is such a great resource and full of support. Sorry you didn’t get a chance to make it to the conference with us but so glad you popped by the blog 🙂

  15. Holy Moly Sabrina! This sounds fantastic, and will definitely be on my list to make for Thanksgiving!! YUM!

  16. I love how you’re thinking when it comes to this pie – pecan AND pumpkin pie together! Sounds and looks fabulous! A great way to switch things up a bit in the holiday dessert department!

  17. OH I need to make this! My immediate family hates nut, but I love them so when my family comes for christmas I will be making this.

  18. This looks fantastic! I love pumpkin pie any old way – I’ll happily eat it plain and cold from the fridge, fork optional – but I love the pecan streusel topping. Very appropriate for Thanksgiving! Last year I made a pumpkin pie with a pecan praline topping for our Friendsgiving and everyone loved it. Very similar to yours!

  19. That looks so absolutely fantastically good! I’ve never had pumpkin pie like this before. I can’t wait to stuff my face with it!

  20. Oh wow, that pumpkin pecan pie is calling my name! I’ve never thought of putting these two pies together. I can’t wait to try your recipe.
