I hated pumpkin pie until I had this one. Now, I will eat no other. This is the best pumpkin pie EVER.

Streusel Topped Pumpkin Pie Recipe

This recipe is by far the holiday family favorite at our house. Gramma Marilyn made it for our Thanksgiving Dinner back in 1998, and it is a regular on our table every year without fail. Without. fail.

Previously, I had never been a fan of pumpkin pie. Too slimy. But, this pie has a graham cracker crust and a crunchy, sweet, nutty top, which offset the smooth custard and make for a great combination.

The ingredients usually go on sale every fall and aside from the egg and butter, they are all pantry stable, so you can stock up and always have what you need for a fantastic pie. We like to serve it with freshly whipped cream. Oh my! This is a Pumpkin Pie you can make all year long as far as I’m concerned.

    Thanks for answering my earlier pie questions! Can I make pie a day ahead? Also, do I pre bake the Graham cracker pie crust?

    • Jessica says

      I usually make it a day ahead. And yes, prebake the crust lightly.

    OMG this is too funny? Last night I made a trial run of a pumpkin pie recipe made with condensed milk. Loved the texture of the filling, but thought it could benefit from a bit more spices and a graham cracker, rather than pastry crust. I didn’t want to have another trial run before Thanksgiving; I am coming home from an out of town event as I write this (hubby is driving) and I wanted to do some blog reading and pulled up this recipe!
    I trust your recipes so. I’m using this one!

    • It is our very favorite pumpkin pie. So yummy! Honored that you trust me. 😉

        How early can I make it in the week? Wednesday?

        • Yeah, I usually make it the day before. It is so easy that it’s really not a problem to make ahead. You could make the streusel far in advance and freeze it. That would take out a lot of steps when baking time comes.

    I am making your pumpkin pie right now. I have a store bought graham cracker crust. Will I burn the crust if I bake it for 15 minutes. I only ask because the directions for the crust says to bake it for 5 minutes a 375.

    • If you bought a premade crust you don’t need to bake it again. Just add the filling and go from there.

    Love this pie seriously have always received rave reviews anywhere I take it and if course when asked to bring it I say YES!! I mean I’m almost embarrassed by how easy it is versus the people eating it and carrying on about how fabulous it is..almost 🙂 And I’ve lost count of how many pumpkin pie naysayers I have converted with this pie. One thing that I find I usually have to do is cover the pie with foil for the first half of baking or it can get too dark. I’m so happy you had the recipe here I’ve been making this for 15 yrs. but my recipe is gone!! (probably stolen by my neighbors lol) Thanks!! (I have 2 in the oven right now!)

    I must tell you that this is the most delicious pumpkin pie I have ever eaten! I made it for Thanksgiving and it was a HUGE hit. My brother said it was the best pie he’s ever had. My uncle asked me at Christmas where the pie was haha. Great recipe! Thanks!

    How can I make this without nuts? Looks amazing!

    • I know I emailed you last night about this, just want to include the answer for others with the same question. I omit the nuts when I make this for my daughter. We’ve found peanut- and walnut-safe almonds in the past and used those, but can’t find them this year.
