Pumpkin Cheese Pie

If you are looking for a new twist on holiday pumpkin pie this is the recipe for you. I love to bake and experiment with new recipes and sometime necessity is the mother of invention. I started to make a simple pumpkin cheese cake with a graham cracker crust and suddenly realized that the grand children had eaten all of the graham crackers. Since I had already opened the can of pumpkin I needed to come up with a new idea. I search the fridge and discovered I still had a left-over prepared pie crust.

So I got to work I place the crust into a pie pan and began mixing the cheese batter for my pie. I decided to take out a small portion about a cup and place it into the pie crust. Next I added all of the usual ingredients for a pumpkin cheesecake. After it was mixed I poured it on top of the cheese mixture I had already place over the crust. Next I baked it and needless to say the rest is history.

My guest loved the pie and said that they preferred it to the ordinary graham cracker crust on I usually make. I have already had several request for this years celebration to make more than one. With the number of guest we are having this year I planned to make a least 3 or 4. With 7 grandchildren and 3 of them teenage boys they may even save a piece for me.
