Pumpkin Crumble

If you like pumpkin pie but aren't too fond of fussing with a crust... You'll love this Pumpkin Crumble! It has a fairly traditional nice custardy filling with a hearty, chewy oat crumble topping. I did bump up the spices a little to suit our tastes. I've given it my 'darn good' label, and my crew gave it a big thumbs up. This would be a nice addition to your Thanksgiving and Christmas Dessert Buffet, or... A nice treat any ole day:@)

It may need to be scooped out and served in a bowl instead of in slices like pie... 
But a bowl is good for the whipped cream or ice cream garnishment any way:@)
I'll list my half batch recipe that can be made in a deep pie dish. 

Pumpkin Crumble-adapted from Food Network
1 Tblsp butter
15 oz can pumpkin puree
1 C Half and Half
2 eggs
3/4 C sugar
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice-I added an extra shake of ground cloves and cinnamon
small pinch of salt

1/2 C old fashioned oats-I added an extra Tblsp or so
1/2 C brown sugar-I cut back about 2 Tblsp
1/4 C + 2 Tblsp A/P flour
1/4 tsp pumpkin pie spice
3 Tblsp butter, mostly melted
  1. Butter pie dish with 1 Tblsp butter, set aside.
  2. Mix pumpkin, Half and Half, eggs, sugar, spices and salt.
  3. Pour into pie dish.
  4. Mix topping ingredients with fingers until combined and crumbly.
  5. Sprinkle evenly over pie filling.
  6. Bake at 350 degrees 50-55 minutes or until set at edges and just a little jiggly in center.
  7. Serve at room temperature or a little warm with whipped cream or ice cream if desired.


  1. I love that this is a pie dish size, Lynn, and sounds like a dessert that my sweet tooth would love. I will be making this soon.
    Your Halloween tree and your tiered tray look like such fun decor. Thanks for sharing the Halloween love.

  2. You're preaching to the choir! Now if Bill would just eat at oatmeal crumble. Sigh. I would love it!

  3. This sounds so good and I do love that oatmeal crumble!

  4. That looks pretty yummy! I am not much of a fan of pumpkin pie but I like the idea of adding that taste and texture of oatmeal. Pinned.
