This recipe was inspired by Mirj's Citrus Pumpkin Pie in a Nutty Crust. The crust is more of a "healthy" crust, so if you dont care for that too much, just go ahead and use your fav crust. The filling is delicate and smooth with great holiday flavours. I loved it and I hope you do, too.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. For the crust combine flour, ground walnuts, chopped walnuts, applesauce, cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice in a bowl. If mixture does not come together, add a tbs or so more applesauce.
  2. Press mixture into a greased pie plate of 24 cm/9 inch in diameter.
  3. For the filling combine pumpkin puree, applesauce, yogurt, sugar, eggs, salt and all of the spices in a big bowl. Mix well.
  4. Pour this mixture into your prepared pie crust and bake in the pre-heated oven at 220°C/425°F for 15 minutes, then lower the temperature to 175°C/350°F and bake for another 45 minutes or until filling is set.
  5. Let cool in the pan. Enjoy!

Absolutely delicious pie! Loved the combo of ingredients in the crust & the pie itself was wonderful! Shared it with a neighbor couple, & it got nothing but raves! I'll definitely be making this one again several times, I'm sure, before the end of the year! Thanks for sharing it! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]

This recipe was quite good! I was excited about how the crust mixed up into a dough though it was a little too so I plan on tweaking it next time; I was thinking about using part graham cracker crumbs. Also, I thought I had vanilla yogurt but it was plain so my filling was a bit more tangy than I would have liked but that is no fault of the recipe's. I just added some extra vanilla this time gut I'll be sure to have the right yogurt next time. Great mix of spices and great pumpkin flavor! Also, I may play with using agave or honey next time. Thanks for posting this recipe!

I've made many of pumpkin pies and this one was not a hit with my family. Something about the flavor was just amiss. I don't know if it was because I used an off brand of yogurt and pumpkin or what. I may make this again with name brand ingredients to see if that was the problem. Crust was good. Thanks for sharing your recipe.
