How to Make this Pumpkin Pie Cheesecake
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
In a medium bowl, use an electric mixer to mix the cream cheese and condensed milk on medium speed until smooth. Stir the pureed pumpkin, pumpkin pie spice, and eggs into the cream cheese mixture. Mix on low speed until well combined. Pour batter into the pie shell.
Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 45 minutes or until a knife inserted 1 inch from the edge comes out clean. I like for the top of the crust to be a little golden, so you can watch for that too. Serve warm.
This is such a wonderful dessert and a nice variation of the pumpkin pie that you might be used to. I love the compliments that I get for this recipe and I also love how easy it is to make.
Pumpkin Cheesecake Recipe Notes:
You could of course make this with a homemade pie crust. It would also be amazing with a homemade or store bought graham cracker crust as well.
We love to top this pumpkin cheesecake mixture with whipped cream or cool whip. You might even sprinkle a teaspoon cinnamon on top of the whipping cream for effect and added flavor. My hubby has even drizzled this dessert with caramel sauce, yum!
You could use this same recipe to make mini pumpkin cheesecakes by using mini crusts and filling them with this pumpkin pie cheesecake filling.
During the holidays I try to grab extra pie crusts and these ingredients from the grocery store to keep on hand as this is such an easy recipe to make and rarely do I have time to make a homemade crust. This pie is such a pumpkin treat, no one will have a clue how easy it is to make.
Unless you are serving right away, you’ll want to cover the top of the cheesecake with aluminum foil or plastic wrap around the rim of pan or pie plate or store in an airtight container.
While this pie can stay at room temperature for your meal or event, I would definitely keep it refrigerated for long periods of time.
We love to make all of the pumpkin recipes! Pumpkin cookies, pumpkin tarts, and of course you can’t go wrong with regular pumpkin pie! Here are some of our other favorite recipes featuring pumpkin as the star:
