This is a very rich and delicious version of the pumpkin pie. It has a cheesecake layer, a pumpkin custard layer, and is topped with caramelized pecans. My aunt gave this recipe to me years ago, and I always get asked for the recipe.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. To Make Cheesecake Layer: In a small mixing bowl, beat softened cream cheese until fluffy. Mix in 1/4 cup white sugar. Add 1 egg and vanilla extract. Stir until mixture is smooth. Pour mixture into pastry shell.
  3. To Make Pumpkin Layer: In a medium bowl, combine pumpkin puree, 1/2 cup white sugar, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, salt, evaporated milk, and 2 beaten eggs. Mix thoroughly, then pour mixture over cheesecake layer.
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 65 minutes, until set in center. Remove pie and turn oven to broiler setting.
  5. To Make Pecan Topping: In a small bowl, mix together softened butter or margarine, brown sugar, and chopped pecans. Gently drop mixture by teaspoonfuls over pie, covering top evenly.
  6. Broil 5 inches below oven coils until mixture begins to bubble, about 3 minutes. Do not overcook, or top will become syrupy. Cool before serving.
  7. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

My friends enjoyed this pie a lot. When making it, I ran into a couple of problems. The 9" shell I used was too small! I had so much pumpkin filling left over. So, I grabbed more cream cheese, and made another 9" pie and 12 little tarts. This allowed me to use up all the pumpkin mix. I also found that it was best to let the cheesecake part sit for a little bit before pouring the pumpkin over top. One comment I received from my friends was that the topping was really sweet. Might try cutting back on the sugar next time. Other than that, great recipe!

Hubby loves his pumpkin pie...so I decided to try another recipe other than my regular. This turned out very good. We both liked this...I actually liked this one more than the other one I had been using. Hubby still likes the other one better, hence the 4 star rating. Will make again....with the family and see what they think. Thanks for the post.

This is delicious and has a great appearance. I don't know why more people haven't tried this. Maybe the ingredients or steps seem overwhelming, but it really is easy and fast. I used a ready-made crust and mixed each filling layer in my food processor. I brought it to work to share with my co-workers and everyone loves it. It's delicious and the topping adds so much flavor and texture. I am making another one tonight to share with family. Thank you for a really easy and delicious recipe that looks much harder than it actually is.
