Old Fashioned Paradise Pumpkin Pie Recipe
This pie 's three layers are sensational: The bottom is a creamy cheesecake layer, the middle is a sweet and spicy pumpkin layer, and the top is a butter pecan streusel that melts and mingles with the pumpkin layer as it bakes.
This double-layer pie has a cheesecake-like filling and a smooth pumpkin custard top. It's the best of all dessert worlds.

This is a very rich and delicious version of the pumpkin pie. It has a cheesecake layer, a pumpkin custard layer, and is topped with caramelized pecans. My aunt gave this recipe to me years ago, and I always get asked for the recipe.
I'm not usually pumpkin pie fan, but I made this for a friend and it is one of our all-time fav recipes. I always double and make two. I also double the pecan topping for each pie, add 2 Tbs. flour to pumpkin, and bake a little longer than suggested. Amazing Recipe!
Such a great receipe! I followed the suggestion of a couple other people and allowed the cream cheese filling to chill in the fridge for one hour instead of 30 minutes. It's the best recipe ever!
DELICIOUS! Made this for Thanksgiving and it was well received by everyone. I highly recommend that this pie is served as chilled as possible for best taste and texture. Also, Be careful with the layering because it's very easy to end up with more cheese than pumpkin if your pan is at all shallow. Other than that, the previous tips to chill the cheese portion and double the streusel are right on the money. Thanks for a great pie!
I made this recipe for Thanksgiving this year! Instead of using a regular pie crust I made one with gingersnaps and used a springform pan. It was Wonderful!!
