No Bake Pumpkin Cheesecake Recipe

If you’re looking for something other than the traditional pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving Day or Christmas, or anytime in fall, try this pumpkin cheesecake pie, instead.

It’s a cross between a no bake cheesecake and a no bake pumpkin pie, so it’s light, fluffy and slightly sweet. Best of all, this is a super easy, no-bake dessert recipe.

I found this easy pumpkin pie recipe in my grandma’s recipe collection a few years ago. This easy recipe is now one of our favorite fall desserts. You can whip up this easy no bake pumpkin pie without Cool Whip in just a few minutes — it’s super simple.

And if you’re wondering why I’m talking about No-Bake Desserts and no bake recipes in the fall, it’s all about making your life easier, especially during the holidays. Holiday desserts should be as simple as possible.

graham cracker pie crust, pumpkin puree, cream cheese, butter, sugar and spices


You only need simple ingredients for this no bake pumpkin pie with cream cheese. They should be easy to find in your grocery store or online. As always, you can find detailed instructions and amounts in the printable recipe card below.

  • Cream cheese — softened at room temperature
  • Butter — softened at room temperature
  • Vanilla extract
  • Powdered sugar — for sweetness
  • Pure Pumpkin puree — canned pumpkin puree not canned pumpkin pie filling, as this has added ingredients.
  • Pumpkin pie spice — for that classic pumpkin spice flavor
  • Ground cinnamon — adds flavor
  • Maple syrup — adds a little extra sweetness
  • Graham cracker pie crust — I use a store-bought graham cracker crust, but you can also use graham cracker crumbs to make a homemade crust.

How to Make No Bake Pumpkin Cheesecake

First, you start out by creaming butter and softened cream cheese with a hand mixer in a large bowl.

Alternately, you can do this in the bowl of a stand mixer with a paddle attachment.

Then, you gradually add the remaining ingredients to the cream cheese mixture.

I ended up changing the original recipe a little. Nothing major.

I added a little cinnamon to the pumpkin mixture because I just love the stuff, and I also added some maple syrup for extra flavor.

After the pumpkin pie filling is blended, you just scoop it into a pre-made graham cracker crust.

Make sure to smooth the creamy pumpkin filling up to the edge of the pie crust.

Honestly, how easy is that?!

Chill Time

Even though this no-bake pie takes just a few minutes to make, the no bake pumpkin cheesecake filling needs to sit in the fridge for about 4-6 hours to firm up.

This is the perfect dessert to make ahead of time. So, plan on making this cheesecake pie the day before you actually need it, and it’ll be perfect!

The pumpkin flavor is even better the next day!

This is one delicious pumpkin pie! Serve it with fresh whipped cream for the ultimate dessert experience. You can also use whipped topping if you prefer that.

How to Store No Bake Pumpkin Pie

Refrigerate leftover no bake pumpkin pie in an airtight container, and it will last for 3 to 4 days.

You can freeze a no bake pumpkin pie for up to 3 months for best taste. Make sure it is wrapped well, and thaw completely before serving.

Helpful Tips

Make sure the cream cheese and butter are softened at room temperature before you begin.

This easy pumpkin pie recipe works with a 9-inch pie crust or 10-inch pie crust. Make your own homemade graham cracker crust using graham crackers and melted butter if you like. A gingersnap crust would also work.

You can use a regular pie crust instead of a no bake graham cracker crust if you prefer. You can also make this dessert in a springform pan for a more traditional cheesecake presentation.

Be sure to refrigerate the cheesecake for at least 4 hours or overnight before slicing.
