Amazing Pumpkin Pie Streusels

June 19, 2012


pumpkin pie streusel


This is such an awesome recipe! So awesome that I might just go buy all the pumpkin puree cans that my local grocery store has to make sure I have enough to make a year’s worth of these delicious streusels!

Pumpkin pie



= Pure Temptation. = Alex overeating again. = Life.

Ok maybe not life but it’s pretty damn good if you ask me!

So good that I ate half the bag of butterscotch chips before I even started making the dessert so…


I made these for this special event I volunteered at with Karl. It was an fundraising event to raise money for the local children’s hospital. This lovely lady, Katrine, started this 10 years ago and this year only, we raised a little more than 43,000$!!!

The event is actually a huge bake/lemonade/hot dogs/candy sale!

It was sooo much fun! It was really adorable to see all the kids helping out!!

Tres leches cupcakes that I made

Delicious muffins made by Katrine!

The setup!!

It felt so good to give back! With University, Work, the blog, I had so little time to help out!! You should start your own big bake sale for whatever cause you believe in! We need to give back! I know this might sound a bit corny but I have been so lucky all of my life! I have wonderful a wonderful and supporting family, I am healthy and I have the best boyfriend ever so  it only makes sense for me to give back, give to those in need, to those who weren’t born as healthy as I am!

So go ahead and make this wonderful recipe and think of how you can give back to people in need!

  3. In a bowl mix flour, 1/2 cup sugar, brown sugar; cut butter into mixture with a pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in oats and pecans. Remove 3/4 cup of mixture and add in butterscotch chips. Set aside and reserve for topping. Press remaining mixture into bottom of parchment lined pan. Bake for 15 minutes.

    I am fixing this for work. Very excited to try it. It took me 5 times to read the directions to figure out that you add the butterscotch chips to the 3/4 c reserved topping. I was trying to figure out how in the world they got on top! :)

  • Alex – I Adore Food!

    Ahah :) Hope you like the recipe! We loved it!
