Cream Cheese Pumpkin Pie

This creamy pumpkin pie is a little bit traditional and a little bit modern. But everyone will agree that it's delicious. —Kim Wallace, Dennison, Ohio
  • Total Time
    Prep: 45 min. Bake: 40 min. + chilling
  • Makes
    8 servings


  • 2 cups finely crushed pecan shortbread cookies
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 2 packages (one 8 ounces, one 3 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 can (15 ounces) solid-pack pumpkin
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon each ground ginger, nutmeg and cloves
  • 3 eggs, lightly beaten
  • Whipped cream, optional


  • In a small bowl, combine the cookie crumbs, flour and butter; press into an ungreased 9-in. deep-dish pie plate. Bake at 350° for 9-11 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool on a wire rack.
  • 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.
  • 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.

    I made 2 of these for Thanksgiving dinner. They were delicious, just the right amount of spices.

    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.

    I don't eat pumpkin pie, but my extremely picky husband gave this his thumbs up, so it must be very good!
