Pumpkin Pie!

Did you know that there is more than one way to make a pumpkin pie?  I like pumpkin pie, but if you add a cream cheese layer, it is simply delicious!  My 19 year old does not care for plain pumpkin pie, but he does like that.

 I am going to give you three recipes for pumpkin pie.  The first one is off the Libby's pumpkin can.  It is the best recipe for regular Pumpkin Pie.

Libby's Pumpkin Pie
2 eggs
1-16oz can pumpkin
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ginger
1/4 teaspoon cloves
1 1/2 cups (12oz can) evaporated milk
9 inch unbaked pie crust

Combine in order given.  Bake at 350 degrees until set in middle about 45 min-1 hour.
Cool. Serve with Cool Whip or vanilla ice cream.

Cream Cheese Pumpkin Pie
1st layer-
8 oz cream cheese
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 egg

Combine and put in bottom of 9 inch unbaked pie crust.

2nd layer-
1 1/4 cups pumpkin
1 cup evaporated milk
1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ginger
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
dash salt

Combine and mix well.  Pour over cream cheese layer.
Bake 350 degrees for 1 hour and 15 min.

Double Layer Pumpkin Pie
This pie is not a baked pie.  It is 2 layers with the cream cheese layer on bottom and pudding and pumpkin on top.  I have not made this pie for years, but am going to have it for Thanksgiving this year.

3 oz. cream cheese
1 cup plus 1 tablespoon cold milk
1 tablespoon sugar
1 1/2 cups Cool Whip
1 graham cracker pie crust
2 pkgs (4 serving size) vanilla instant pudding
1 can (16 oz) pumpkin
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ginger
1/4 teaspoon cloves
Beat cream cheese, 1 tablespoon milk, and sugar until smooth.  Gently stir in topping.  Spread on crust. Pour 1 cup milk into bowl.  Add pudding mix.  Beat until well blended, 1-2 min.  Let stand 3 minutes.  Stir in pumpkin and spices.  Mix well.  Spread over cream cheese layer.  Refrigerate at least 2 hours.  Makes 8 servings. 

Recipe for crust:
16 graham crackers
6 tablespoons melted butter
1/3 cup sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
Mix well and pat into 9 inch pie pan.
