Skillet Pumpkin Pie with Streusel topping is delicious when cooked in a cast iron skillet. The perfect Southern Pie for Thanksgiving this year. It’s a simple recipe that blows away traditional pie.
SKILLET PUMPKIN PIE
In Southern Kentucky, we can’t remember a single Thanksgiving without pumpkin pie. It’s the top choice for the holidays, the problem is that even the homemade ones taste pretty similar. Most times the distinguishing difference is the quality of the crust. We always eat a slice of pumpkin pie at Thanksgiving but rarely are impressed. Usually, they are store-bought or else someone purchased a ready-made piecrust and poured in a can of pumpkin pie filling (with the spices already mixed in), tossed it in the oven, and called it homemade. If you are looking for an absolute Grand Slam Homerun, try our Skillet Pumpkin Pie with Streusel Topping. It takes pumpkin pie to the next level.
This Skillet Pumpkin Pie doesn’t just offer a beautiful appearance with that streusel topping, it’s scrumptious. This is a recipe your family and friends will love.
You honestly will enjoy making our Skillet Pie recipe, teamed with our Easy Pie Crust Recipe. It’s another quick and tasty pick… enjoy!
The streusel topping will take your pie to new heights. It bakes up perfectly, looks gorgeous, and taste so much better than a traditional pie. We are confident that this pie is going to be perfect for your Thanksgiving dessert this year.
The addition of the streusel topping certainly gives our pie a ton more flavor and texture. It’s still the pumpkin pie the crowd demands, but with a level of sweetness and the texture most folks have never tasted.
We chose to not use a store-bought crust but selected our Butter Pie Crust. We also chose to top ours with our Homemade Whipped Cream. You’ll discover that this pie recipe is so easy that even a first-time pie maker will have success.

HOW TO MAKE OUR SKILLET PIE RECIPE
First, Preheat the oven to 425 and heavily grease a 10 inch skillet.
In a large bowl, combine eggs, sugar, pumpkin puree, evaporated milk, and pumpkin pie spice. Beat until blended.
Before pouring the filling into the skillet, be sure to use a fork and poke a dozen or so places in the bottom of the crust to allow the pie to vent.
Now pour filling into pie crust. Bake for 15 minutes.
Combine dry streusel ingredients in a large bowl and whisk together. Add cold butter and work with a pastry cutter until dry mixture is fully incorporated. Crumble so pieces are no larger than pea-sized.
Remove pie from oven and sprinkle streusel over pie.
Cover the edge of the crust with a pie crust ring or aluminum foil.
Reduce temperature to 350 and bake about 30 minutes longer, until streusel is nicely browned and a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
Cool for a least 1 hour.
