"My mother gave this recipe to me, and I'm glad she gave it to me. I think it's better than regular pumpkin pie, it doesn't have a real strong pumpkin taste. It's great! My boyfriend doesn't like pumpkin pie but he sure likes this! Originally submitted to CakeRecipe.com."

I made some changes to this recipe to make it suitable for my husband who is diabetic. I used splenda and added just a touch of vanilla extract. I also baked it in a single deep dish crust instead of 2 regular. It was very good, even our non-diabetic friends enjoyed it. It was very fluffy and light and had a nice smooth consistency. We added a dollop of sugar free cool whip and a few chopped pecans before serving. I will definitely make this recipe again.
I think more pumpkin could be added here, as the pumpkin flavor was very very subtle. Good, creamy texture though, everyone loved it. Also, I used canned pumpkin pie filling which includes all the spices so it was super easy!
This is excellent. I use 1/3 less fat cream cheese, add 1/4 tsp. ground cloves, 3 1/2 Tbsp. flour & 4 Tbsp. milk. Adding flour gives the cheesecake structure. Since I prefer my cheesecake a little firmer, this works well and for those with the same preference, you may want to try this. I served this dessert for Easter and it went over very well with many compliments received. Good post!
Fabulous! I liked it better than regular pumpkin pie. I used low fat cream cheese too! My family seemed disappointed when they heard there was no regular pumpkin pie, but after tasting it they were very impressed!!
Very good. I used this recipe for cupcakes instead of pie and turned out great. Added a little more spices and sugar. Put in cupcake liners with vanilla wafers for crust and baked for 20 min at 325. Topped with whipped cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon and they were great little treats.
I love cheesecake and pumpkin pie, so I was excited to try this. It lived up to my expectations, and my whole family enjoyed it as part of our Thanksgiving dinner. I used pumpkin pie spice, which has the cinnamon, ginger, nutmet, and allspice already in it, which simplified things. And I made only one deep dish 9" cheesecake instead of two 8" cheesecakes...would rather have a little leftover than two skimpy pies. I had to bake it a little longer, but it was worth it...delicious and would definitely make again!
i'm following a low carb diet and this is a fantastic recipes if you do the following: cut the recipe in half, use splenda instead of sugar, and bake in a glass dish. When it's cooled, spoon into a dish with a dollop of whipped cream and you have a dessert (or breakfast) for only about 6 carbs!
Boy! did this pie go over well. It is so much better than regular pumpkin pie and doesnt have that overwhelming pumpkin pie taste. Smooth taste and easy to make. I make 1 deep dish pie instead of 2 regular pies and it is much better. You will have some left over but just put in a oven safe dish and bake it with the pie. Add whipped cream and have a pumpkin cheesecake pudding. IT'S GREAT. This is our traditional pumpkin pie for ALL holidays.
