Filling Streusel

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F.
  2. Combine 1 cup flour, 1/4 cup brown sugar, 1/2 cup pecan pieces in a food processor and process until the nuts are finely ground. Add the 4 tablespoons of butter and 1 egg; pulse until well blended.
  3. Press the mixture over bottom and up sides of a 9-inch tart pan. Bake for 20 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, prepare the filling. In a mixing bowl with an electric mixer, beat 2 large eggs with 1/3 cup sugar, 1 cup pumpkin, the evaporated milk, salt, and spices.
  5. In another bowl, combine the 1/4 cup flour, 1/4 cup brown sugar, 2 tablespoons of softened butter, and 1/4 cup of chopped pecans. Set aside.
  6. Pour the pumpkin filling mixture into the hot crust and return to oven. Bake for 20 minutes longer; sprinkle with streusel and bake for about 10 minutes longer, or until topping lightly browned. The center should look dry and set.
  7. Cool in pan on a rack for 30 minutes. Remove sides of pan and cool completely. Serve with whipped cream. Store in the refrigerator.
