Dutch Apple Pumpkin Crisp

  Whenever someone asks me what my favorite dessert is, I always say "a hot apple something with vanilla ice cream and caramel sauce." Whenever someone asks me what my favorite PUMPKIN  dessert is, I always say "I've never met a pumpkin dessert I didn't like!" So, imagine how excited I was when I found THIS recipe!!  It's the best of both worlds!! Yummy delicious spiced pumpkin with apples, topped with a crispy crumble topping. HEAVEN!! This is a Betty Crocker recipe, but actually I found it on a blog called Crumbs and Chaos. And it's super easy to make too! You don't even need a mixer! Perfect for a special holiday dessert or just because you're in the mood for a warm comforting Fall treat! Betcha there won't be any leftover! Try it!

2 cups apples, peeled and chopped
3/4 cup flour
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup butter, softened
3/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice, divided
1 cup pumpkin puree
1/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup milk
2 tbs flour
1 egg

Preheat oven to 350°.
Place apples in the bottom of a 9 inch pie plate. Microwave 2 1/2 – 4 minutes, until apples are crisp tender.
In a small bowl, mix together 3/4 cup flour, brown sugar, butter and 1/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice. Stir together until crumbly, set aside.
In a medium bowl, whisk together pumpkin, sugar, milk, 2 Tablespoons flour, 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice and egg. Pour over apples in pie plate. Sprinkle crisp topping mixture over pumpkin layer.
Bake 30-35 minutes or until golden brown and set. Let cool 30 minutes, serve with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.
To be quite honest, I didn't even measure the pumpkin pie spice. I always wind up adding more anyway, so I just threw some in. Like Mom always said, if you like a lot, add a lot!
Oh and yes, I served mine with caramel sauce, because that's just how I roll. But you serve it how you like it!
