Ginger Pumpkin Pie with Streusel

The holidays just aren’t complete without gingerbread — but who says it has to come in the form of cutout cookies? Knock tradition on its ear, and meld gingerbread into a pumpkin pie! The flavor difference is subtle enough that pumpkin pie connoisseurs won’t be let down. Yet it’s bold enough to intrigue and even please those who are a little iffy about the classic version.

  • ½ Recipe Flaky Pie Dough
  • 2 Eggs
  • ½ cup Packed light brown sugar 
  • 1 tbsp. Molasses 
  • 1 can Pumpkin purée (15 oz.) 
  • 1 tbsp. Grated fresh ginger 
  • 1 tsp. Pumpkin pie spice 
  • ½ tsp. Table salt 
  • 1 cup Heavy cream


  • Preheat oven to 375°. Line a baking sheet with foil.

The Pie

  • Prepare pie dough according to recipe and rolling directions. Prick dough with a fork and chill 15 minutes. Line the pie shell with foil and fill with dried beans or rice. Bake shell 15–20 minutes; remove foil and beans. Bake crust until golden, 10–12 minutes; let cool to room temperature.
  • Whisk together eggs, brown sugar, and molasses until combined. Add pumpkin purée, grated ginger, pumpkin pie spice, and salt; stir to combine.
  • Stir in cream until mixture is smooth; pour into pie shell and bake until set, about 40 minutes.

The Streusel

  • Combine gingersnaps, pecans, crystallized ginger, and butter until gingersnaps are saturated with butter.
  • Scatter streusel generously over center of pie. If edge of crust is golden, cover with a pie shield; return to oven.
  • Bake pie until center is set, pie puffs in center, and streusel is crisp, 15–20 minutes more. Remove pie from oven; let cool on a rack to room temperature before serving.
