Instructions

  1. If using a pie crust dough, defrost one sheet of dough and place in a pie plate.
  2. Crimp edges, prick the bottom with a fork and bake in 400 degree oven for 10 to 12 minutes, or until the crust is golden.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, beat cream cheese for 30 seconds.
  4. Add brown sugar and beat until smooth.
  5. Add vanilla, spices and pumpkin puree. Beat until well mixed and smooth.
  6. In another mixing bowl, whip cream until stiff peaks form. (see note for tips)
  7. Using a rubber spatula, add 1/3 of whipped cream to the pumpkin cream cheese mixture and gently fold in (do not whisk or mix).
  8. Add the rest of the whipped cream and fold in gently, until no white streaks remain in the filling.
  9. Scoop the filling out onto the cooled crust. Spread with an offset spatula. Make decorative swirls or peaks.
  10. Place the pie in refrigerator for at least 2 hours to set. You can also refrigerate it overnight.
  11. Keep the leftovers chilled for up to 2 days.
