I followed this recipe exactly as written and I have to say that these were good, but not amazing. I don't think there was enough "spice" in them... pumpkin anything needs a good dose of spices to really offset the flavor, and I don't think the 1 tbsp pumpkin pie spice does that here. I am always hesitant to use pumpkin pie spice anyways, rather than mixing my own, and in this case I wish I'd used spices more akin to what you would use in pumpkin bread. I think cloves would add a wonderful touch to this recipe. Other than that, they baked up fine and the streudel was delicious. I didn't have a problem with sweetness like some others said, but I enjoy sweet things so that may be why. I thought they were just barely sweet enough.
All in all, I would make again using the same base recipe but switching out the spices for pumpkin bread spicing instead.
