2 Layer Pumpkin Cheesecake Pie

When Autumn rolls around, I start thinking about preparing for the big Thanksgiving Day feast.  That means the turkey and all the accouterments.    The dinner itself is easy as  I always cook a turkey with a traditional French meat stuffing that my mom made.  A recipe she got from her mother, who probably got it from her mother, and so on, and so on.   But I always like to add something original, that special something that makes the celebration unique.  This year it will be the dessert  ” Pumpkin Cheesecake Pie”.

This pie is a combination of pumpkin pie and cheesecake.  I know,  you say “everyone makes pumpkin cheesecake, that’s not original at all”.  But I beg to differ.  I love a homemade flaky pie crust, therefore I chose to make a double layer pumpkin/cheese pie.   The unique thing about this recipe is the cheese layer is light, just like the pumpkin layer.  Not a heavy, thick cheese layer, that may be hard to get down after a full turkey dinner.

The cheese layer is made up of cream cheese mixed with mascarpone cheese.  Mascarpone cheese is the light, delicious, creamy cheese that is in the famous Tiramisu dessert.  It is the Italian creamier version of what we know as cream cheese.

You can serve this pie up with a dollop of sweetened whip cream or even a drizzle of salted caramel sauce. YUM!!

This recipe filled at 9.5″ deep-pie dish.  If using a regular pie plate, this recipe will make 2 pies.  (you must double the crust recipe for 2 pie crusts)
