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.

  3. Ann M says

    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!

  6. Now these look divine! Great idea individual cup portions.

  7. So excited that it’s the season for pumpkin! This recipe sounds delicious!!

  8. Mary E.S. says

    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.
