Pumpkin Pecan Crunch
Pumpkin. Pecans. Buttery cake topping. = PERFECTION
These are the perfect flavors of fall! THIS is a comfort dessert. I’m ready to eat a bowl of this with a hot cup of coffee for a cozy autumn evening. This pumpkin pecan crunch is one of my most absolute favorite desserts! I love pumpkin pie and at Thanksgiving, I like to take a half of piece of pumpkin pie and half of a piece of pecan pie and eat a bite of each together. Yum!!
Because of my love of pumpkin and pecan pie mixed, this pumpkin pecan crunch dessert is a favorite of mine. It’s like pumpkin and pecan pie all wrapped up in one dessert. What a wonderful combination of pumpkin and pecan pie mixed!
In just 10 minutes of less, you can have this ready to go in the oven.
