The Pumpkin Cheesecake Pie with Streusel topping elevates the classic Thanksgiving pie to new levels.

With a traditional pumpkin pie baked on top of a cheesecake layer, topped with pecan streusel, this pie is a fall dessert dream come true.

One last pumpkin recipe of the season for all of you who are still trying to plan your Thanksgiving menus. And this one will be a favorite.

It’s still traditional while being unique and delicious. 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 book has some of my favorite recipes and so many memories inside.

How to make a layered pumpkin cheesecake pie

This makes a big pie and the recipe calls for using a deep dish pie plate. Please don’t try attempt to use a regular one. I don’t want to ruin your Thanksgiving with a burnt, overflowing mess in your oven. I used a 9.5 inch deep dish pie plate.

Start with the crust. All butter pie crust is the best, but when I’m in a hurry, this cheater oil pie crust does the trick. Next, you’ll make a basic cheesecake filling for the bottom. It’s cream cheese, vanilla, sugar and egg.

Next, is a classic pumpkin pie filling. Pumpkin, eggs, brown sugar, half n half. And of course pumpkin pie spice. And last is a brown sugar streusel, made from butter, flour, pecans and brown sugar.

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

This pie, along with my apple streusel pie, is the perfect classic desserts for your Thanksgiving dinner. If you want something even more cheesecake-based, try this Pumpkin Pie Cheesecake.
