In this recipe, I jazz up the regular pumpkin pie recipe, and this pie was good and sweet!  Here’s what you need.

  • 1 (15 ounce) can pumpkin puree
  • 1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 (9 inch) unbaked pie shell

For the topping:

  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons butter, chilled

1.  Preheat oven to 425 degrees.  Take the pumpkin puree, condensed milk, cinnamon, salt, and egg yolks, and mix together!

4.  After 15 minutes, take pie out of oven and pour the streusel on top of the pie.  Reduce oven temp to 350 degrees and bake pie for 40 additional minutes.  After baking, take pie out of oven and let cool for several hours.
