Recipe from Sunset

Sharon Klein embellishes a classic pumpkin pie with a streusel topping, then overlaps pastry leaves around the edge and sets a few on top.



  1. 1. Preheat oven to 375°. In a bowl, mix granulated sugar, brown sugar, flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, and ginger. Add pumpkin, milk, and eggs; whisk until well blended.
  2. 2. Pour mixture into unbaked 10-inch pie pastry in pan. Sprinkle walnut streusel evenly over filling.
  3. 3. Bake on the bottom rack until a knife inserted in center comes out clean, 60 to 65 minutes.
  4. 4. Set on a rack until cool to touch, about 2 hours. Cut into wedges.


Roll out half as directed for crust; roll other half into a 1/8-inch-thick round and use a cookie cutter to make shapes, or place a leaf on dough and cut around it with a small, sharp knife. If making pie up to 1 day ahead, cover and chill.
