My Favorite Pumpkin Pie

Double-Layer Pumpkin Pie

What you will need:

Ready Made Pie Crust...1 (pre-backed)
Cream Cheese...4 oz, softened
Cool Whip...1 ½ cups,
Pumpkin...1 can, 16oz
Jello Pudding Instant Vanillas Pudding...2 packages (4 serving size)
Cold Milk...1 cup plus 1 Tbsp
Sugar...1 Tbsp
Ground Cinamon...1 tsp
Ground Ginger...½ tsp
Ground Cloves...¼ tsp

Putting it together...

  • Preheat oven to 4500

  • Poke the bottom and sides of pie crust with a fork

  • Back pie crust in oven for 10-12 minutes

  • In a large bowl, mix Cream Cheese, 1 Tbsp of milk, 1 Tbsp Sugar until smooth

  • Gently stir in Cool Whip

  • Empty mixture in the bottom of the crust and spread evenly

    • In another bowl, pour 1 cup of milk

    • Add pumpkin, pudding mixes, and spices

    • Mix well

    • Spread over cream cheese layer

  • Refrigerate for 4 hours or until set

Now, being lazy and since my wife doesn't like the graham cracker crust, I use the ready-made pie crust. However, if you like graham crackers, here is the recipe for the crust (the way I like it).

Graham Cracker Crust...

  1. Hi and checking in because I saw your tweet about pie...which always gets my full attention! I have to try this recipe--with graham cracker crust (you can buy these crusts ready made here, too) it sounds yummy! Hope your novel is coming along!?

  2. Oh wow! This sounds delicious! Since it's not noted, I'll presume the serving size is 4 - nice BIG slices! :D

  3. This recipe sounds delicious! I love pumpkin pie!

  4. WillOaks Studio: Lol, this is a real simple recipe and the pie tastes fantastic.
    The novel is coming along alright, I am currently trying to figure out where the story is going to go, which is why I have time to answer comments. Hopefully, something will come to me soon.

    BeadedTail: That sounds like just the right portion size to me ;)

    Catherine: Oh, it is! This is my all-time favorite pumpkin pie recipe.
