Streusel-Topped Pumpkin Pie

Making this pie, I felt like a Pintrest meme.  Messy bun, yoga pants and a love of all things pumpkin.  There has to be a white girl joke in there somewhere.

I’m not sure where this recipe came from, looks like it was cut off the back of a box.

No substitutions were made.

1 refrigerated pie crust
15 oz pumpkin puree
12 oz evaporated milk

1/4 tsp salt

Streusel:
1/4 c packed brown sugar
2 tblsp all-purpose flour
2 tblsp butter
1/2 c chopped pecans

Heat oven to 425 degrees.  Place crust into a pie plate.  In a large bowl, mix filling ingredients until well blended.  Pour into crust-lined pie plate.

Bake 15 minutes.  Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees; bake 15 minutes.  Meanwhile, in a small bowl, mix streusel ingredients.

Sprinkle streusel over pumpkin filling.  Bake 15 to 20 minutes longer or until knife inserted in center come out clean.  Cool completely, about 1 hour.
