Pumpkin Pie Crisp


This cozy dessert features all the flavors you know and love in a pumpkin pie, but without the hassle of rolling a crust. The creamy pumpkin filling is complemented by the warm spices in the pumpkin pie spice blend and maple syrup. Oats and pecans add a lovely crunch to the topping. Serve warm with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.

Nutrition Profile:


  • ½ cup old-fashioned rolled oats

  • ½ cup whole-wheat flour

  • ¼ cup chopped pecans, toasted (see Tip)

  • 2 ½ teaspoons pumpkin pie spice, divided

  • 1 teaspoon salt, divided

  • 4 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into small cubes

  • 3 tablespoons pure maple syrup plus 2/3 cup, divided

  • 1 (15 ounce) can unseasoned pumpkin puree

  • ½ cup whole milk

  • 2 large egg yolks

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • Vanilla ice cream for serving (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 350℉.

  2. Toss oats, flour, pecans, 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice and 1/2 teaspoon salt together in a medium bowl. Using your fingertips, mix in butter until the mixture is crumbly. Refrigerate for 15 minutes. Fold in 3 tablespoons maple syrup until well incorporated (it will be a wet sand consistency).

  3. Whisk pumpkin, milk, egg yolks, vanilla and the remaining 2/3 cup maple syrup, 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice and 1/2 teaspoon salt together in a large bowl. Pour into a 10-inch cast-iron skillet. Sprinkle the oat topping over the filling.

  4. Bake until the filling is set and the topping is golden brown, 30 to 35 minutes. Let cool slightly, about 10 minutes before scooping. Serve with vanilla ice cream, if desired.

For the best flavor, toast nuts before using in a recipe. To toast chopped nuts, place in a small dry skillet and cook over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until fragrant, 2 to 4 minutes.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
