Classic pumpkin pie gets a makeover as it’s joined by two layers of walnut streusel! No shortage of brown sugar, butter, and chopped walnuts in this delicious pumpkin pie!
I meant to share this Walnut Streusel Pumpkin Pie sooner, but I lost the photos for a few weeks. Never had that happen before, and there was a little while where I thought maybe I actually forgot to take any at all! That would be a first. They magically appeared on a memory card just in time for me to get this up before Thanksgiving.
This version of pumpkin pie is one of the best I’ve ever had, and now one of my favorite pumpkin recipes on the blog.
It’s not just that it’s topped with a streusel of oats, brown sugar, butter, and chopped walnuts, but it’s also lined with streusel on the bottom of the pie. Before you even pour your pie filling into the shell, you’ll cover the entire bottom of the pie crust with a generous layer of brown sugar, melted butter, and walnuts too.
That’s a whole lot of streusel, but who’s complaining? It’s really no more difficult than making a regular pumpkin pie, it just takes a few extra minutes to throw together the streusel.
The pumpkin pie takes on caramel-like qualities from the melted butter and brown sugar, and the crunchy walnuts provide a little texture. It’s like covering both the top and bottom of your pie with layers of brown sugar-candied walnuts. Sounds amazing, doesn’t it? It is.
You could make a traditional pumpkin pie for the holidays, but for a few extra minutes of prep time, you can give your guests a delicious and unexpected twist with this Walnut Streusel Pumpkin Pie.
