- What I love about this recipe is that it’s less fussy than making a pie from scratch, but still has a lot of the same flavors. So, instead of a flaky crust, you get a sweet crunchy streusel topping made with oats instead.
- This recipe makes a large crisp. I like to bake it in a large skillet for a fun presentation, but you can also use a 9×13″ baking dish.
- Serve it plain or add a dollop of whipped cream or a scoop of ice cream!
If you’re tired of the same old fall desserts, this easy pumpkin crisp needs to be on your list! It’s easy and you’ll love it!
- Eggs – Room temperature eggs mix into the batter the best.

- Pumpkin pie spice – you can use homemade or storebought.
- Pure vanilla extract
- Kosher salt
- Quick-cooking oats
- All-purpose flour

How to Make It
Make the Filling: Whisk the eggs and sugar in a large bowl. Add the pumpkin, half and half, pumpkin pie spices, cinnamon, vanilla, and salt. Whisk to combine. Pour the filling into the prepared pan.
Make the Topping: Mix the oats, flour, brown sugar, and pumpkin pie spice in a bowl. Use a pastry cutter to cut the cold butter cubes into the mixture. Spread the oat mixture over the top of the pumpkin filling.
Bake! Place the skillet in the oven and bake the crisp uncovered, at 375°F for 35 to 45 minutes or until the middle is set and topping is started to brown.
You can serve it plain, but it’s even better with a topping! Here are some of my favorites:
- Try a scoop of vanilla ice cream or get fancy with caramel ice cream or butter pecan!
- A simple dollop of whipped cream is a great option, too. Make homemade whipped cream or use prepared whipped topping to make it even easier.
- Try a drizzle of caramel sauce! My homemade caramel sauce is great or you can use storebought.
I like to serve this crisp warm, but you can serve it chilled or at room temperature.
Leftovers will keep in the refrigerator for two to three days. Just be sure to keep it covered with plastic wrap.
I don’t recommend freezing it. It will not have the best texture after it’s been thawed.
Warm pumpkin crisp with that creamy filling and sweet crunchy topping – this is definitely a dessert to have on your fall baking list! Make it for Thanksgiving or whenever you want a delicious fall dessert.
