IMG_4115

Get inspired with holiday deserts like this pumpkin pie, it has a hint of rum and is served in a sweet graham cracker crust. The rum walnut topping makes the perfect finish for this luscious pie. I have been making pumpkin pies for as long as I can remember, this however is my first time trying to dress it up.  I am glad I did, this was beyond a doubt a grand desert!

2 cups of pumpkin puree

½ teaspoon salt

¼ cup brown sugar

1 (14oz) can sweetened condensed milk

2 eggs

1 tsp rum extract

1 ½ teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

Graham crackers (2 packages)

½ stick of butter

For the walnut topping you will need

1/3 cup firmly packed brown sugar

1/3 cup flour

½ teaspoon cinnamon

¼ teaspoon rum extract

3 tablespoons butter room temperature

½ cup chopped walnuts

Using a food processor grind the graham crackers.IMG_4046 IMG_4045IMG_4046 Combine with the ½ stick butter (melted) and form the crust in a pie plate using your fingers.

Bake in your preheated oven for 15 minutes, reduce the temp to 350 and continue baking for an additional 30 minutes.

In a medium mixing bowl combine the flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, rum and nuts. Cut in with the butter until crumbly. Remove pie from oven and top with the mixture, return to the oven for 10 minutes.  Allow to cool and enjoy!
