Pumpkin Mousse Pie – light and creamy pumpkin pie that’s a perfect finish to a Thanksgiving dinner. This no-bake pie is made in under half an hour and can be made ahead of time. The time saving dessert you need for the holidays!
You guys, I made a pie.
There is no other way to explain it, but to say that I gave in to the pressure. I mean, can you imagine Thanksgiving without a pie? Didn’t think so.
You may know that I do not make pies often. Maybe once a year. And it will be an apple pie. But this year my Hubby asked for a pie. A pumpkin pie. After a moment of sheer panic, I composed myself and decided that I can do it. It might just not be as traditional as you would expect.
And you know what? HE LOVED IT! My Hubby loved this Pumpkin Mousse Pie!
His only requirement was that the pie had to be light and creamy, not dense and chewy like the traditional pumpkin pie. My Hubby never liked pumpkin pie for the texture and I never liked it because after a full and heavy turkey dinner, the last thing I want is an even heavier dessert.
I took all of these points in consideration and set off to make the best light and creamy pie. It also had to be easy, even if I had to use a shortcut.

This pie doesn’t require baking, besides the crust (if you making it from scratch from your favorite family recipe or bought a pie crust dough, like I did) but you can buy a pie shell or make a quick graham cracker crust. The filling is quick and easy and consists of only few ingredients. It sets into a melt-in-your-mouth sweet pumpkin heaven!
You can make this pie ahead of time and store for up to 2 days. Another big plus! You can dress it up with a dollop of whipped cream, a dash of nutmeg and maybe even a drizzle of caramel sauce. Or you can have it plain and simple. Whatever you decide, you will absolutely love this pie!
So forget the dense and heavy baked pumpkin pie and make this light and creamy no-bake dessert. And get ready for compliments from the guests! Because everyone will love it!
