Delicious Pumpkin Cheesecake Pie

You can’t go wrong with this beauty on your Thanksgiving dessert table. It is a delicious twist on a pumpkin pie recipe and it’s quite easy to make. Even the non-pumpkin-pie people will like it. The best part? The easy and delicious cookie crust! This recipe is a big win!

Perfect Balance of Flavor

I am personally a lover of good pumpkin pie and cheesecake, so it is easy for me to love this pie. A few friends wanted to try it that don’t usually like pumpkin pie though and they actually thought it was pretty good! They even ate their whole slice. So it seems to be a wonderful compromise!

There’s enough pumpkin pie involved for those who are fans, but little enough for those that aren’t. It’s a perfect balance of sweet tasty goodness.

Pie Crust Tips:

I think the gingersnap crust is perfect for this pumpkin cheesecake pie, however, a graham cracker crust works well too. Cookie or cracker crusts are great because they are so easy and quick to make. And, of course, they taste good too!

This pie is a bit thinner than most pies, but I actually really like that because you don’t have to worry about the center not cooking through. And it is a great ratio of crust to pie filling, especially for those that like a good crust, like me.

Make It Ahead of Time:

If you want to save some time you could definitely make this pumpkin cheesecake pie a day in advance. Just cover the pie loosely with foil or plastic wrap and keep it refrigerated. Also, wait to add whipped topping until right before serving.

Pumpkin Cheesecake Pie Tips:

I ended up with some extra pumpkin pie filling because I didn’t want the filling to exceed the crust, so I just put the extra in a ramekin and baked it alongside the pie. Of course, if you are able to press the crust further up the sides, you can add more in there and have less extra, if any.

If you want to get really fancy with the topping, you can mix up some fresh whipping cream with a little bit of powdered sugar, a pinch of ground ginger, and a teaspoon of vanilla. Otherwise, the easy canned stuff gets the job done, or I like it without any topping too.

Final Thoughts

This recipe is so easy and so tasty! I love that I can make it a day or two before Thanksgiving and still enjoy what seems like a fresh and new pie on Thanksgiving day. You will love this recipe because it is a twist on the classic and traditional pumpkin pie, but easier to make and so delicious too!

Ingredients

Gingersnap Crust

  • 2 cups gingersnap cookie crumbs about 10 3/4 ounces
  • ¼ cup powdered sugar
  • 6 tablespoons butter melted

Cheesecake Filling

  • 8 ounces cream cheese room temperature
  • cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons sour cream optional
  • 1 large egg lightly beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Pumpkin Filling

  • ½ cup sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¾ teaspoon ginger
  • ¾ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
  • ¼ teaspoon allspice
  • 1 cup canned pure pumpkin puree
  • cup evaporated milk
  • 2 large eggs lightly beaten

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375.
  • In a medium bowl, combine crumbs, sugar, and butter. Press the mixture into the bottom and partway up the sides of a 9-inch springform pan or 9-inch deep-dish pie pan. (It may be helpful to use a measuring cup with straight sides to press and smooth the crust.) Bake for about 8-10 minutes, just until set and aromatic. Remove from oven and let crust cool on a rack.
  • For the cheesecake filling, beat the cream cheese (and sour cream, if adding) with the sugar until fairly smooth. Stir in the egg and vanilla. Spoon the filling into the crust.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the sugar, salt, and spices. Add the pumpkin, milk, and eggs; whisk gently until combined and smooth. Gently spoon the pumpkin mixture over the cheesecake layer, up to about 1/4 inch of the top of the crust. (If you have extra filling, you can bake it in a custard cup along with the pie, and remove it from oven when set.)
  • Reduce oven temperature to 350.
  • If using a springform pan, place it on a baking sheet lined with foil. Bake for 50-60 minutes, until it looks set but still wobbles a bit in the center when you jiggle it. Remove pie from oven, let cool to room temperature, then refrigerate until serving. Serve with lightly sweetened whipped cream flavored with a pinch of ginger and a teaspoon of vanilla.
