1 cup all-purpose flour
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup cold Land O Lakes® Butter, cut into chunks
3 to 4 tablespoons cold water
1 (15-ounce) can pumpkin
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 large Land O Lakes® Eggs, slightly beaten
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/4 cup cold Land O Lakes® Butter, cut into chunks
1 tablespoon powdered sugar
Freshly grated orange zest, if desired
How to make
Heat oven to 375°F.
Stir together 1 cup flour and salt in bowl; cut in 1/3 cup butter with pastry blender or fork until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Mix in 1 teaspoon ginger root and enough water with fork until flour is just moistened. Pat into ungreased 10-inch tart pan with removable bottom or 9-inch glass pie pan. Bake 10-15 minutes or until crust just begins to brown.
Combine pumpkin, granulated sugar, 2 teaspoons ginger root, vanilla and cinnamon in bowl. Stir in eggs just until well mixed. Stir in 1/2 cup whipping cream. Pour pumpkin filling into baked crust. Bake 30-35 minutes or until set around edge.
Combine 3/4 cup flour and brown sugar in bowl. Cut in 1/4 cup butter with fork or pastry blender until mixture resembles fine crumbs. Sprinkle streusel over hot, partially baked filling. Continue baking 15-20 minutes or until knife inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 30 minutes.
Beat 1 cup whipping cream and powdered sugar in bowl at high speed, scraping bowl often, until stiff peaks form. Dollop each serving with topping mixture. Garnish with orange zest, if desired.
Peppery and slightly sweet, ginger root has a tan skin and yellow to ivory flesh. Look for the gnarled root in the produce section of your grocery store. Be sure to peel gingerroot before grating.
