Pumpkin Cream Cheese Filling Recipe

Pumpkin Cream Cheese Filling Recipe
Almost everyone serves pie on Thanksgiving and through the holidays; pumpkin and apple are the most popular, but it’s nice to change things up a little sometimes. This versatile Pumpkin Cream Cheese Filling can be used for several dishes that are easy to make; it takes just minutes to put a pie together using it in a store-bought graham cracker crust. It also makes a luscious pie in a homemade unbaked regular pie shell. You can use it in a 9” x 13” shallow baking dish lined with pie dough and top it with decorative pie dough and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar. I have used this to fill tiny tartlets, and have also left out the eggs and used it as a dip for gingersnaps or seasonal fruit such as apples and pears.
This recipe makes enough to fill two 8” pie shells (graham cracker or unbaked pie shells) or 1 9”x 13” glass baking dish. It will fill approximately 48 mini pie shells or can be spooned into mini pie shells without crust but with a streusel topping. It is enough filling to make a 10” cheesecake: line a springform pan with a graham cracker crust, bake it for 10 minutes, then fill with the filling and bake about 60 minutes or until set. The possibilities are endless. If you want to serve a pumpkin dip, omit the eggs, chill well, and serve in a decorative bowl surrounded with seasonal fruit and gingersnaps. You can also use the eggless version to fill crepes.
