How to Make Our Easy Double Layer Pumpkin Pie Recipe (Cream Cheese Layer):
To make the crust of this pie mix together the graham cracker crumbs, sugar, butter, and ground cinnamon in a small mixing bowl until everything is mixed together well.
Then press the crumb mixture into the bottom of a pie plate and bake it in a preheated oven for 6-7 minutes at 375 degrees.
Take the plate from the oven and let the crust cool completely before filling it with the pumpkin filling.
Speed up the cooling process by popping the crust in the fridge as well.
To make the pie filling, combine together the softened cream cheese, 1 tablespoon of evaporated milk, and sugar in a large mixing bowl and whisk everything together until the ingredients are smooth.
Then, gently stir in the Cool Whip to the cream cheese mixture.
Once you have incorporated the Cool Whip, spread the creamy mixture into the bottom of the cooled pie crust.
In a large mixing bowl, pour the remaining evaporated milk and dry pudding mixes (do not actually make the pudding).
Then, using the whisk, beat the ingredients together for a minute until the ingredients become thick.
Once the pudding mixture is thick, add in the pumpkin puree and pumpkin pie spice, and stir it all together with the whisk.
After the pumpkin layer ingredients are well combined, spread it over top of the cream cheese layer and refrigerate it for 4 hours or until it is completely set up.
Then serve it and enjoy with whipped cream topping! We are sure this Double Layer Pumpkin Pie Recipe will become a family favorite.
