What does Crustless Pumpkin Pie taste like?

Imagine the velvety smoothness of a traditional pumpkin pie without the fuss of a crust, and then add a delectable cinnamon streusel for a delightful crunch. That’s precisely what our Crustless Pumpkin Pie Crumble offers. The pumpkin purée, sugar, eggs, pumpkin pie spice, salt, vanilla, and heavy cream are expertly combined to create a luscious, creamy base with a perfect balance of sweetness and spice.

What truly elevates this dessert is the Cinnamon Streusel topping. Made with flour, oats, sugar, cinnamon, salt, and melted butter, it bakes into a golden, crumbly, and slightly caramelized layer that provides a satisfying contrast to the smooth pumpkin filling. The aroma of warm spices fills your kitchen as it bakes, creating an irresistible anticipation.

Ingredients

Pumpkin custard

Cinnamon streusel

  • All-purpose flour.
  • Oats. Pulse the oats in a food processor to break them down. I give them a couple of pulses so they’re broken down into bits about half their original size. You can do them as small or large as you want depending on how much texture you want. Furthermore, you can omit the oats and add another 1/2 cup of flour for a traditional streusel.
  • Granulated Sugar. You can use either all granulated sugar and omit the brown sugar OR you can use all brown sugar and omit the granulated sugar if you want.
  • Brown sugar.
  • Cinnamon. You can use pumpkin pie spice for this if you want. I prefer cinnamon.
  • Salt.
  • Unsalted butter.

Crustless Pumpkin Pie Crumble FAQ

Absolutely! You can make the Crustless Pumpkin Pie Crumble a day in advance and store it in the refrigerator. Reheat it in the oven or microwave for a warm, delicious treat.

Certainly. If you prefer a traditional crust, you can use a store-bought pie crust or make one homemade for this recipe. Just be sure to blind bake the crust for 10 minutes before adding the pumpkin filling.

Can I substitute ingredients to make this dessert lower in calories?

Yes, there are ways to make a lighter version of this dessert by using low-fat alternatives for sugar and cream. However, it may affect the texture and flavor, so be mindful of the adjustments you make.

Ingredients

Pumpkin Pie Layer

  • 1 15-ounce pumpkin purée
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup brown sugar light or dark, pack
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • ½ cup heavy cream

Cinnamon Streusel

  • 1 and ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup old-fashioned roll oats
  • 1 and ½ cups granulated Sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 12 tablespoons unsalted butter melted

Instructions

  • For the oats (see post above for more info) – Pulse the oats in a food processor to break them down. I give them a couple of pulses so they're broken down into bits about half their original size. You can do them as small or large as you want depending on how much texture you want.
  • Preheat your oven to 375°F. Grease a 12-inch cast iron skillet, a deep pie pan, or a medium casserole dish with solid vegetable shortening or butter. The dish needs to be about 3 inches deep.
  • Whisk eggs and add them to a medium bowl along with the pumpkin, sugar, pumpkin pie spice, salt, and vanilla extract in a large bowl. Whisk in heavy cream until smooth. Pour into prepared your baking dish and set aside.
  • Now for the streusel. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, cinnamon, and salt. Add melted butter and stir with a fork (or mixer) until crumbly.
  • Spread the cinnamon streusel topping on top of the pumpkin mixture in an even layer.
  • Bake until the filling is set and the streusel top is golden brown, 45 to 55 minutes.
  • It's not going to serve in slices like a pie, you'll need to scoop it out like a cobbler. Allow it to cool for about 10 to 15 minutes before serving. I like it best served warm with vanilla ice cream.
  • Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator. It will last about 4 days in the fridge.

    My crew was hungry and I wanted to try this but I had zero time. So I substituted the canned shredded chicken and made it in the skillet, cooking between medium and low heat. Then once the cheese was melted on top, I added jalapeño slices and served on buns. They were amazing! Thanks for the recipe!

  2. I don’t see my question about brown sugar so I’m sending again. Your post mentions brown sugar and white granulated sugar as ingredients needed, but the recipe itself only mentions white sugar. I love brown sugar and would like to know what amount and where to add it. Thanks.

    1. Thank you for catching that, Alice. It should be 1/2 cup granulated sugar and 1/2 cup brown sugar (light or dark). I corrected it in the recipe card. Again, thanks for pointing that our to me.

  3. This looks delicious. I have everything to make it including brown sugar. You mention brown and granulated sugar in the post, but the recipe card only shows granulated. I like brown sugar and would like to know amounts and where to add in the recipe.
