We think you deserve the very best pumpkin pie recipe to dazzle your family and guests. This is my favorite dazzler, from a 2009 Bon Appétit magazine, because this pie combines the spicy quality of pumpkin with just the right amount of caramelized brown sugar, cinnamon, and toasted walnuts. Think pumpkin pie, coffee-cake style! (And you know we love our streusel-topped morning coffee cake.)
Here’s another swell thing about this recipe: You can make the topping and the filling a day ahead. I’ll do anything I can in advance to dial back Thanksgiving Day stress.
Of all the pies in all the gin joints in the world, why did we feature this one? Despite the popularity of pecan and apple, pumpkin is the most loved pie during this holiday season. We say go for the gold.
