This recipe combines the best of both worlds, a pumpkin pie and a cheesecake. What could be better? Many thanks to Stephanie Gardner for this recipe. This cream cheese pumpkin pie is a delicious variation on a traditional pumpkin pie for a Thanksgiving meal. And, it’s so easy to make because there is no baking. This simple no-bake pumpkin cheesecake pie comes together in no time.

This easy-to-make dessert is a no-bake pumpkin pie with a second layer surprise hidden underneath the pumpkin. The no-bake pumpkin top layer is basically a pumpkin pudding. The secret to this pie is the Cool Whip cream cheesy layer under the pumpkin. If you don’t like using Cool Whip, you can certainly whip up your own cream. That will work out just fine in this recipe.

The pumpkin pie mix does not need to be cooked; canned pumpkin is already cooked. If you really wanted to, you could eat the pumpkin straight out of the can. Smooth out the pie top, and you’re done! Then pop your pie in the fridge to chill for about three hours. It’s a terrific make-ahead dessert.

If you’re intimidated by the whole process of baking homemade pies, this no-bake pumpkin pie recipe is perfect for you. And, no need to run to the store to buy a ready-made pumpkin pie that no one is going to rave about. This creamy whipped pumpkin pie recipe is truly as easy as pie to make.

This no-bake pumpkin cheesecake pie is a delicious dessert for any holiday. It’s loaded with pumpkin and spice, and a layer of creamy cheesecake. It’s always a crowd-pleaser! You can rely on this recipe any time you want a quick seasonal dessert.

    I’ve been making this for years. Instead of half and half, I use regular milk. I am not a fan of pumpkin anything but this pie is wonderful! It is the only pumpkin pie I will eat.
