Pumpkin Slab Pie with Pecan Streusel
- 1 recipe pie crust for double crust pie
- 3 large eggs
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
- 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
- 1 tsp. salt
- 1 15 oz. can pumpkin puree
- 1/2 cup heavy cream
- 1 cup rolled oats
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup all purpose flour
- 1/2 cup butter (1 stick)
- 1/2 cup coarsely broken pecan halves
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place a deep flexi flat* on a perforated baking** sheet or grease a jelly roll pan.
Roll pie crust into a 13x17 rectangle. Gently place into pan. Ease crust into corners and ups the sides. Roll or fold edge gently and flute the edge with your hands. Trim off excess dough if needed.
Whisk together eggs, sugar, spices and salt in a large bowl until smooth. Whisk in pumpkin. Whisk in the cream and pour filling into the pie crust. Spread and smooth top.
Bake for 30 minutes until filling begins to set. Sprinkle chilled streusel evenly over filling. Continue baking until the topping is golden brown and the filling is set, about 25 minutes. The tip of a knife inserted should come out clean. (be careful not to pierce your flexiflat)
Cool to Room temperature. Refrigerate until chilled.
Stir together oats, brown sugar and flour in a large bowl. Work in the butter with a pastry cutter or fingertips until the mixture is crumbly. Gently toss in the pecans. Cover and refrigerate until butter is cold. At least 30 minutes.
