The fantastic flavor from this pie comes from butterscotch pudding and canned pumpkin, which work surprisingly well together. Kids will go wild over the cream cheese layer! —Taste of Home Test Kitchen

"<p>@Arlenetim26.....yes. The pumpkin acts as the added liquid and thins it out. I make one very similar every year. Great taste and very easy to make. People will think you spent hours :)</p>"

"I put the gingersnaps in a big ziplock bag and pounded them with a hammer and they were done in no time. :) and yes I'd increased the milk also."

"When making the top layer you need to work quickly before the pudding sets up and 1 cup of milk is just fine! A nice alternative to regular pumpkin pie and heavy cheesecake - best of both worlds!"
