One of my very favorite fall desserts is Streusel-Topped Pumpkin Pie. I could eat the whole thing. Truly.

This recipe is so easy – open a few cans, an egg, some spices and whisk away. It comes together in minutes. Top it with a streusel topping and you’re good to go.

Oh my, are you ever!

For years I’ve wondered about cooking the custard filling in individual ramekins. Not only does it look a little more elegant and make it easier to serve, but it’s a little lower in carbs. If that kind of thing bothers ya.

This week I busted out and tried it. The result? Delicious, just-for-you, happiness in a cup! The ideal dessert for the mom who wants to hide in a closet with a little dessert without having to share.

P.S. I know that it doesn’t yet fit the food goals. But, baby steps, baby steps.

    Nice to know I’m not the only that hides. I will share every and anything with my kids – even lay down my life for theirs. But I REFUSE to share anything on my plate on in my cup – some things are just off limits – and this dessert will be another thing off limits. Get your paws off, kids!

  4. This looks yummy! I just bought 51 cans of pumpkin so this will come in handy! Do you have any suggestions for making it egg free?

  5. Looks delicious! I’m sure I would want to eat it all too, thanks!

    For those of us with nut allergies,swap the nuts for oatmeal to get a basic streusel topping.

  9. Ro says:

    I’m making this now but without the strudel. Only 15 minutes of baking time?

    • Jessica says:

      @Ro, you’re going to bake 20 min at high heat and then add the topping and reduce heat and bake for another 15 minutes.

      • Ro says:

        Thanks Jess – actually – I am baking this as a pie without the strudel topping. The first go around I baked it for 40 minutes. I am baking it again tonight.
