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.

Recipe Notes

Delicious with Pumpkin Pie Spice or Garam Masala in place of Chinese Five Spice.

9 full-size graham crackers (or 1 1/4 cups crumbs)

1/4 cup sugar

1/4 tsp. salt

1/4 cup pecans

grated zest of 1 medium orange

1/3 cup unsalted butter, melted

For the filling:

2 cups canned pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling)

3 large eggs, at room temperature

1 cup packed brown sugar

2 Tbsp. unsalted butter, melted

1 1/2 cups heavy cream

1/3 cup sour cream

3 Tbsp. dark rum
