Recipe By Savory Spice Test Kitchen

When you want to switch up your pumpkin pie routine, try something a bit more exotic than Pumpkin Pie Spice. We love how Chinese Five Spice or Garam Masala add warmth and depth to this pumpkin dessert. And the orange-graham tart crust is a nice departure from the usual pie shell.

Serving Suggestions

Serve with topped with whipped cream and sprinkled with toasted, chopped pecans.
