How to Make No-Bake Pumpkin Cheesecake Pie
You start out by creaming butter and softened cream cheese in a large mixing bowl. Then, you gradually add the remaining ingredients.
I ended up changing the original recipe a little. Nothing major.
I added a little cinnamon because I just love the stuff, and I also added some maple syrup for extra flavor.
After the filling is blended, you just scoop it into a pre-made graham cracker crust. Honestly, how easy is that?!
You can whip this pumpkin cheesecake pie up in just a few minutes -- it's super simple. But even though it takes just a few minutes to make, it needs to sit in the fridge for about 6 hours to firm up.
So, plan on making this pie the day before you actually need it, and it'll be perfect! And friends, let me tell you -- This is one delicious pumpkin pie!
I know a lot of people have pumpkin pie for Christmas, so even if you have your Thanksgiving menu planned already, you can just save it for next month!
Even my picky eaters loved it, and they're not all that crazy about traditional pumpkin pie. So, even if you're not a huge fan of pumpkin pie, you might really like this no-bake pumpkin cheesecake.
