Baked Homemade Pumpkin Crisp

Pumpkin crisp is a perfect easy fall dessert – it is great served chilled or cooled, so it can be made ahead of time, it pairs perfectly with pork, turkey, chicken, and vegetable dishes for easy weeknight dinners – and its bursting with fall flavor!

Traditionally, crisps use oatmeal in the topping to help bring a lighter, less dense texture than baked fruit crumbles – but we’re calling this recipe a crisp even though there is no oatmeal because it has a texture that is almost identical, even without the oats.

How To Make Pumpkin Crisp

Making pumpkin crisp is pretty simple, we’re mixing both the filling, and then the topping, to layer in a casserole dish before we bake.

It is important to follow the steps to be sure you’re keeping topping and filling ingredients in the right place, but these steps will help you make a perfect pumpkin crisp every time.

Tips To Perfect Pumpkin Crisp and FAQs

Pumpkin crisp is one of the only crumbles and bakes I actually like better cold – while you can certainly serve this dessert hot or warm, we think the texture is better cool or even chilled.

Pecans are completely optional for this recipe, but we like the extra crunch they give this recipe – one of the reasons we love crisps over crumbles is for the extra toothy “bite” oatmeal gives to a recipe, and pecans help mimic that and kick it up a notch!

FAQs

How long can pumpkin crisp last?

Pumpkin crisp can be stored in the refrigerator in an airtight container for up to four days.
