Pumpkin Cheesecake Pie

I have a well-known love for no-bake cheesecakes. No bake lemon cheesecake, no bake nutella cheesecake and no bake blueberry cheesecake are just a few of the recipes my family loves.

This Pumpkin Cheesecake Pie is very similar, we’re simply going to use pumpkin and warm fall spices in the filling to make it perfect for fall gatherings.

Pumpkin Cheesecake Pie

No Bake Pumpkin Cheesecake Ingredients

  • Cream cheese, softened to room temperature. Plan ahead because this will take several hours. I’ve tried to make the cheesecake with too cold cream cheese before and it turns out lumpy.
  • Powdered sugar
  • pumpkin pie spice
  • Canned pumpkin, not pumpkin pie filling.
  • Heavy whipping cream -OR- Cool Whip. If you use whipping cream, you’ll need to beat it until stiff peaks form before folding it into the cheesecake.
  • Homemade (or store bought) graham cracker crust

No Bake Pumpkin Cheesecake Pie Recipe

Start by making the graham cracker crust. I have a post on how to make a no bake graham cracker crust. That gives a ton of tips and tricks on how to do it. Set it in the fridge to chill while you make the filling.

Similar to my other no bake cheesecake recipes, you’ll start by beating together the cream cheese and powdered sugar until smooth. Then beat in the pumpkin and pumpkin pie spice.

When that’s done, gently fold in the cool whip or homemade whipped cream. Scoop into the crust and smooth out. You’ll need to chill the cheesecake pie for 6 hours to set up.

I like to serve with additional whipped cream. This recipe is a great alternative to pumpkin pie on thanksgiving or it would be perfect for when you’re craving pumpkin, but it’s still warm out and you don’t feel like baking. (like right now 🙂

This No Bake Pumpkin Cheesecake is a favorite

If you’re craving some twists on traditional pumpkin pie, try my layered pumpkin cheesecake bars, or my pumpkin pie cheesecake (this is a favorite) or the best pumpkin sheet cake you will ever have.

I also have my eye on this pumpkin slab pie, it looks delicious and like it would feed a crowd.

    I know it’s early for pumpkin, but I couldn’t resist the idea of a cold no-bake pumpkin pie on a hot summer day. This was perfect! I’ll definitely be making this again with our Thanksgiving desserts. Thanks!!

    I make the pumpkin cheesecake recipe every year for Thanksgiving the only thing difference is I buy the graham cracker crust that’s already made. I always get asked what Bakery this comes from and I tell them I make it myself my family sure loves it. The best no-bake pumpkin cheesecake ever.
