We’re well into Fall now and Thanksgiving is almost upon us - can you believe it? From the cool air, to the smell of freshly fallen leaves on my morning run to the ample tasty treats - autumn really is the best season.
One of the best flavours of fall is pumpkin and it’s super healthy! Jam packed with vitamins and minerals not to mention mashed pumpkin has only 50 calories per cup and 3 grams of fiber plus it boosts vision, lowers blood pressure, help you sleep better and benefits the heart. It’s good for you and tastes good! So in celebration of Thanksgiving this weekend here’s a spin on the typical pumpkin pie - Pumpkin Crisp. Enjoy!
The simplicity and buttery rich crumble topping of a fall crisp, the perfection of a creamy pumpkin pie, all thrown together in a few minutes and so so good!

FOR THE FILLING:
- 4 Large Eggs
- 1 can (29 Oz. Size) Pumpkin Purée
- 1-½ cup Sugar
- 1 Tablespoon Pumpkin Pie Spice
- 2 cans (12 Oz. Size) Evaporated Milk
FOR THE TOPPING:
- ¾ cups Flour
- 1 cup Firmly Packed Brown Sugar
- 1 cup Old Fashioned Rolled Oats
- ½ teaspoons Salt
- 2 teaspoons Pumpkin Pie Spice
- ½ cups Butter, Melted
- Preheat the oven to 425ºF. Grease a 9×13″ pan and set aside.
- For the filling, in a large bowl, beat the eggs until blended. Whisk in the pumpkin, sugar and spices until smooth. Pour in the evaporated milk and stir gently until combined. Pour this filling into the greased pan and bake for 15 minutes.
- While the filling is baking, stir together the topping ingredients until moistened and well combined.
- When the 15 minutes is up, open the oven, lower the temperature to 350ºF, and sprinkle the crumble topping evenly over the hot filling. Close the door and bake for 60-70 minutes, until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean and the topping is golden.
- Let cool to room temperature and then place in the fridge to chill for a few hours or overnight. Serve with lots of fresh sweetened whipped cream and of course some hot, black coffee to wash it all down with!
