‘A little fancier than a pumpkin pie’

 

Ingredients

 

Pie crust for a 9-10’pie plate

 

Filling

 

2 cups cooked pumpkin

3 eggs                                                                         ½ tsp nutmeg

1/3  cup sugar                                                         ¼ tsp cloves

¼ cup brown sugar                                                ¼ tsp salt

2 Tbsp all purpose flour                                        2 Tblsp molasses

1 tsp ginger                                                               ½ cup whipping cream

1 tsp cinnamon                                                        ¼ cup whiskey

                                                           

 

Streusel Topping

 

¾ cup all purpose flour                                          ½ tsp salt

Spoon pumpkin into a bowl, whisk in the eggs until thoroughly incorporated. Add sugars, molasses, flour, spices and salt.  Whisk in cream and whiskey. Prepare the topping.  Mix the flour, sugars and spices in a bowl.  Using a pastry blender or two knives cut in the butter forming pea sized pieces. Add the nuts and ginger. Pour the pumpkin filling into the unbaked pie shell, sprinkle the streusel on top and Bake at 350° for 50-60 minutes until set. Let sit 2 hours before serving or refrigerate overnight.
