Apple Butter Pumpkin Pie with Streusel Topping


In our family I’m known for my “special pumpkin pie“.  A recipe handed down to me from my grandfather.  As glorious as that pie is though…… we sometimes crave just a “regular” pumpkin pie.

So of course I couldn’t “just make a pumpkin pie” I had to find one that was “kicked up a notch” and I think I did it!!  Lucky Leaf is a favorite pie filling of mine and it didn’t take me long to find the recipe I wanted to try on their site.

This  delicious combination of flavors and texture just screams “fall” with apple and pumpkin, in a heavenly spiced custard pie.  The slightly crisp pecan  streusel topping gives a surprising crunch in every bite.

    I made your Grandpa pumpkin pie first a few months ago. Now I made this pie today. Both huge winners!

    I recommend doubling the recipe for this apple butter pie (just like you have a double recipe for the grandpa pie) because almost all the ingredients are enough for doubling it. I made one for us and one to give to my dad.

    Delicious pies – thank you for sharing your recipes and sharing how to make them so even a beginner like me can make it!

    I think that we should help a local enterprise by hiring a local ‘man & van’ to move our bulky items.
