Pumpkin and Walnut Crunch Pie

    1 hour 10 min

    This is a wonderful change from the traditional pumpkin pie. A shortcrust pastry case is filled with a spiced pumpkin filling, then topped with a zesty walnut crumble. Enjoy with a dollop of whipped cream or ice cream.

    This was very good and a nice change from the norm. Just make sure you fine chop the orange zest. I also used a deep dish pan and it was filled to the brim. Enjoy!  -  05 Nov 2001  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Very nice for company! They won't be expecting this when you say "pumpkin pie" for dessert! Really good. I'm making another tonight to take to work tomorrow. I think i'll impress my coworkers!! I hate zesting rinds, don't know why, but for this i'll do it!  -  13 Mar 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
