Pumpkin Crisp

If you want a fairly easy dessert for the holidays this is it.  You don't have to worry about making a crust and it can be cut into squares.  I used my home made Pumpkin Puree which is listed here on my blog, if you didn't make the home made version, canned or jarred is fine.  Make sure it says "Pure Pumpkin" on the label and not "Pumpkin Pie Filling."

What you will need:
Stand Mixer or Whisk
2-Medium Size Bowl  (Only one if you use a Stand Mixer)
Glass Baking Dish 8"x 11"
Paper Towel
Measuring Cup
Measuring Spoons
Oven Mitts
Wooden Tooth Pick

Ingredients For Pumpkin Filling:
3/4 Cups Brown Sugar
2-Tablespoons Sugar (I use organic unbleached)
4-Cups Pumpkin Puree (32-Ounces)
3/4-Cups Evaporated Milk
3-Large Eggs Beaten
1/2-Teaspoons Ground Cinnamon
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
1/2-Teaspoon Ground Nutmeg
1/2-Teaspoon Ground Cloves
1/2-Teaspoon Ground Ginger
1/2-Teaspoon Ground Allspice
1-Teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract

Vegetable Oil for greasing your baking dish. *Crisco*

Crisp Topping:
6-Tablespoons Butter, Melted
1/2-Teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
1-Cups Quick-Oats
3/4-Cup Brown Sugar, Firmly Packed
3/4-Cups Walnuts Shelled and Chopped *Optional*
2-Tablespoons All-Purpose Unbleached Flour

*Whipped Cream and Pure Maple Syrup for topping, optional.* I do have a home made Whipped Cream recipe listed here on my blog if you would like to use that, if not, you can use store bought.

Preheat your oven to 375-Degrees Fahrenheit.
With your paper towel, dip it into the Crisco Shortening and lightly grease your baking dish, set aside.

In your Stand Mixer Bowl, add all of the Pumpkin Filling ingredients, blend on low until all are well combined, it should appear smooth. Set aside.

In your other Medium Size Bowl, add all of the Crisp Topping ingredients.  Stir well until all are combined using a Spatula or Stand Mixer. Set aside.

Pour your Pumpkin Filling into the greased baking dish.  Bake for 60-minutes or until the center is no longer jiggly-loose and a nice golden brown. You can poke the middle with a tooth pick, if it comes out clear with no filling on the pick, then it is done. If it's not clear, bake for about another 5-minutes or so.

Take the Baking Dish out of the oven wearing your Oven Mitts.  Place Baking Dish on a heat-resistant surface and sprinkle all over with the Crisp Topping.  Place back into the oven for 10-15 minutes  until the topping is a golden brown.  Take the Backing Dish back out of the oven using your Oven Mitts.  Place on a heat-resistant surface and let cool for at least an hour.

Cut into squares and serve with whipped cream and drizzle maple syrup over top.
