  1. I was wondering if there was an ingredient missing from the pumpkin layer. I made this today and it didn't turn out. It was just can spiced pumpkin with crumb topping. The topping was good so we picked it off and ate it. I was thinking when I made it that I should add a couple of eggs but I made it by the recipe instead. I'll add eggs if I make it again and see how it goes.

  2. I'm sorry you didn't like it, but I'm glad you at least liked the crust! We enjoyed the moist pumpkin layer. If you want it to be more pie-like (a bit thicker), I'm sure the eggs would be a good addition. You could add two eggs to the batter if desired. Good luck! Let me know how it goes!

  3. Definitely going to try it with an egg. The topping would be great on spiced apples or mixed fruit.
