A gingersnap streusel topping adds crunch to traditional pumpkin pie. Refrigerated pie dough speeds preparation.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°.

Step 2

Roll dough into a 12-inch circle; fit into a 10-inch deep-dish pie plate. Fold edges under, and flute. Freeze 30 minutes.

Step 3

Place cookies, 2 tablespoons sugar, and flour in a food processor; process until cookies are ground. Add butter; pulse until crumbly.

Step 4

Combine 3/4 cup sugar and remaining ingredients; pour into prepared crust. Bake at 350° for 35 minutes. Sprinkle crumb mixture over pie; bake an additional 20 minutes or until center is set. Cool to room temperature on a wire rack.

Wonderfully creamy pumpkin filling, and I loved the double dose of ginger, both in the filling and from the crunchy gingersnap topping. Would bake 5 minutes longer next time.

Very easy. This produced a lovely, light & smooth pumpkin custard. The spicy-sweet crumb topping was great. This was meant to be a less-spiced pie but added 1/2 tsp vanilla, 1/4tsp allspice, 1/4tsp cloves, which worked for us. Dessert with CL's home-style pork and greens.
