This recipe is our family’s twist on traditional pumpkin pie. The recipe comes from my mom’s cookbook.

It’s a big binder with all sorts of recipe clipping glued or wrote onto the pages. When I got married and moved out, one of my sisters copied each page and put together my own binder of recipes.

That cookbook has some of my favorite recipes and so many memories inside.

Layered Pumpkin Cheesecake Pie

First things first, this recipe makes a big pie and the recipe calls for using a deep-dish pie plate.

I don’t want your Thanksgiving dessert ruined with a burnt, overflowing mess in your oven, so listen to this and don’t try to use a regular pie plate. You must use a 9.5-10 inch deep-dish pie plate.

Start with the crust. All butter pie crust is always a great option, but when I’m in a hurry, this cheater oil pie crust does the trick.

Layered Pumpkin Cheesecake Pie

You’re going to start by making a basic cheesecake filling for the bottom layer with cream cheese, vanilla, sugar, and egg.

Then you’ll stir together a classic pumpkin pie filling with pumpkin, eggs, brown sugar, half and half, and pumpkin pie spice.

Last you’ll mix up the brown sugar streusel with butter, flour, pecans, and brown sugar.

Because of all the layers, the pie takes a while to bake and cool. Take care to let the pie cool completely before slicing so it slices into clean pretty pieces.

This pie is the perfect classic dessert for your Thanksgiving dinner. If you want something even more cheesecake-based, try this Pumpkin Pie Cheesecake or the Caramel Pumpkin Cheesecake.

All the awesome buttery sweet pecan pie goodness of the classic pie in a cobbler-style dessert that you can stir together in just a few minutes? Absolutely! This Pecan Pie Cobbler was a HUGE win from the very first bite.

This pie is a spectacular Thanksgiving dessert that never fails to wow our guests.
