FUN MEMORYMy first Thanksgiving, I wanted to make a pumpkin pie, but not just any pumpkin pie.  I wanted something unique from the typical recipe.  I was reading through all my food magazines and happened to come across a recipe that involved making a streusel topping for a pumpkin pie.  The thought just sounded like a perfect combination.   Not only does it sound like a perfect combination, but it truly is my favorite pumpkin pie recipe BY FAR!  I have tweaked my recipe slightly to my own personal taste from the original recipe that gave me the inspiration.  HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

Tip #1:  Pie Shield  www.SweetDashofSass.comI highly recommend investing in a pie crust shield.  This will help prevent your crust from over baking before the pie is done cooking.  Typically they have a non-stick finish and fits most 9″ and 10″ diameter pies.  They are also dishwasher safe! Ranges from $4-$8.

Tip #2:  Looking to reduce just a few calories?  Use Fat-Free Evaporated Milk and Fat Free Cool Whip!
