Pumpkin Apple Goodness

Pumpkin. Apple. The two quintessential flavors for autumn and winter desserts of all kinds, especially pies, right? Inevitably, though, when you have a bunch of people gathered around, waiting for the pie to be unveiled after a spectacular meal, at least one is going to have a slight look of disappointment cross his or her face no matter which pie you reveal, if only for a moment. There always seems to be someone who prefers apple to pumpkin or vice-versa, even if they will eat both. So, next time it strikes your fancy to concoct a tasty fall dessert, please everyone by including pumpkin and apple in one dish! While you are at it, if you aren’t much for the precise measurements involved in a pie crust, leave it out! This dessert is so ridiculously easy and delicious.

Pumpkin Apple Goodness





  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. Peel and dice apples (about 1/2 cubes).
  3. Spread apples on bottom of 9″ pie plate and bake for 10-15 minutes or until crisp-tender.
  4. Meanwhile, combine flour, brown sugar, butter, cinnamon and nutmeg in small bowl. Use a pastry blender, two forks or your finger tips to mix the topping until crumbly.
  5. In another bowl, whisk pumpkin, sugar, milk, eggs and more nutmeg and cinnamon until smooth. (If you are feeling adventurous, add a dash of curry or garam masala here!)
  6. Remove apples from oven and pour pumpkin mixture evenly on top.
  7. Sprinkle crumb topping over pumpkin layer.
  8. Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until center is set. Let sit for 15-20 minutes before serving this plateful of fall!
