Equipment

  • Small Mixing Bowl
  • 8 inch pie tin
  • Large mixing bowls (2)
  • Whisk
  • Rubber spatula

Ingredients

Pie Crust

  • 1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs I pulsed the graham crackers in my blender
  • 1/3 cup white sugar
  • 6 Tablespoons butter melted
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Pie Filling

  • 4 ounces cream cheese at room temperature
  • 1 Tablespoon evaporated milk chilled
  • 1 Tablespoon sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups cool whip (about 1/2 of an 8 ounce container) thawed
  • 1 cup evaporated milk chilled
  • 6.8 ounces instant vanilla pudding mix
  • 15 ounces pumpkin puree
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice

Instructions

Pie Crust

  • Mix graham cracker crumbs, sugar, butter and ground cinnamon together in a bowl until fully incorporated.
  • Press mixture into an 8 or 9 inch pie pan. Bake at 375 degrees F for 6-7 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool for at least 30 minutes before adding pie filling (you can also cool in the fridge if needed).

Pie Filling

  • Combine cream cheese, 1 Tablespoon evaporated milk, and sugar with a whisk until smooth and fully combined.
  • Gently fold in Cool Whip.
  • Spread cream layer on the bottom of the cooled pie crust.
  • Pour remaining 1 cup evaporated milk into bowl.
  • Add dry pudding mixes (do not prepare pudding as directed on box - just use the dry pudding mix). Beat with wire whisk for 1 minute (mixture will be thick).
  • Stir in pumpkin puree and pumpkin pie spice with wire whisk until fully incorporated. Spread the mixture over the cream cheese layer.
  • Refrigerate for 4 hours or until set. If desired, top with whipped cream.

Notes

  • While I know it is convenient to just buy a container of pumpkin pie spice, there is just something about making your own blend for the delicious Fall recipes.
