Introduction: No Bake Pumpkin Cream Pie

About: I crochet and do crafts. Oh and I also work full time and have a family to take care of. I'm on here because this site is so cool and easy to post to. You can also check me out on Ravelry: http://www.ravel…

I'm not a purist when it comes to pumpkin pie.

This creamy, no-bake pumpkin pie has your classic pureed pumpkin and pumpkin spice flavor, along with a block of cream cheese and whipped topping to make it creamy and definitely less heavy than a standard pumpkin pie.

Optionally topped with pecans and additional whipped topping, I took these two pies to a family gathering and even people who don't normally eat pumpkin pie were raving about it.

My four year old helped me make the pies and enjoyed the fruits of his labor as shown in the last photo!

Prep Notes -

Ensure your whipped topping is pre-defrosted in the refrigerator. This can take up to six (6) hours.

Soften the cream cheese at least one hour (at room temperature) prior to mixing the ingredients below.

Refrigerator time: 1 hour after mixing

Yields 2 pies and serves: Approximately 16

The links to these Instructables show you how to make your own pumpkin pie spice and graham cracker crusts if you would like.
