  2. For filling, in a large bowl, beat cream cheese and sugar until smooth. Beat in the pumpkin, flour, milk and spices. Add eggs; beat on low speed just until combined. Pour into crust.
  3. Bake at 350° for 40-50 minutes or until center is almost set. Cover edges with foil during the last 15 minutes to prevent overbrowning if necessary. Cool on a wire rack for 1 hour. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours before serving. Serve with whipped cream if desired. Yield: 8 servings.

"I'm always looking for easy around the holidays. This was great. My husband isn't a cheesecake fan, but he loved it. Enough cheesecake to make me happy and enough pumpkin pie for him. I agree about deep dish pie plate, it is a must for perfect pie."

"This is good, but not outstanding. It's a little richer than pumpkin pie, not quite as heavy as a cheesecake might be, and not very different from either one. The flavor was good and we all enjoyed it, but I don't know if I'll make it again. I gave it 4 stars instead of 3 only because of the pecan shortbread crust ... we really liked that, and it was a unique touch that raised this dessert a little above the ordinary."

"My daughter at the last minute decided she wanted to try to make a pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving and found this recipe. She is a beginner baker and was able to complete this from start to finish with little help and it turned out delicious. The texture was very light and fluffy and the crust was delicious. We had some left over filling that we put in ramekins and enjoyed with some whipped cream."

"This was excellent and most people preferred this over the traditional Pumpkin pie. Make sure you use a deep dish pie plate and if you bake more than 1 at a time you may need to increase the baking time."

"It was good.... But not a wow. Trying to be two things at once and felt like it wasn't great at either. Will make a pie or cheesecake next time. good flavor for the most part."
