Do you serve Pumpkin Crisp hot or cold?
This crisp is great warm but you can also serve it cold, the texture changes a bit but it’s still gorgeous!
What to put on Pumpkin Crisp?
Topping Pumpkin Crisp with ice cream or whipped cream is always a winner, especially warm so you get that melty creamy goodness.
You could also drizzle some melted chocolate over the crisp, pumpkin and chocolate love each other. Ditto fudge sauce!
If you do have leftovers, you’ll want to cover the remaining crisp with a lid or plastic wrap (after it has cooled) and refrigerate. I’d suggest eating the crisp within a day or two because the topping will get less and less crunchy as the time goes by.
Once you’re ready to eat, you can have it cold or warm it up in the microwave for 10-15 seconds.
- Use a preheated oven.
- Use pumpkin puree not pumpkin pie filling.
- You can omit the pecans, if you wish – still tastes great!
- Use a greased pan.
- The pumpkin crisp should be golden and bubbly when you remove it form the oven.
- Allow to cool for 5 mins before serving.
- Serve with ice cream, whipped cream or drizzle chocolate sauce on it!
I just made this, It is not good. I love pumpkin and everything that goes into it. However, It’s the oats in the topping. It makes the whole thing nasty! I will make it again and just make a crumble and leave out the oats on this one.
I’m sorry you didn’t enjoy the oats, Chris! They’re a pretty classic crisp topping, but you can certainly leave them out if you’re not a fan!
I made this using fresh pumpkin puree and it was fabulous. Thanks Becky!
Thanks for sharing, Kate!
