A couple of weeks ago, I enjoyed a dinner out with my family and we were looking at the dessert menu, of course. The menu featured a pie that was a layered pumpkin pie and cheesecake sort of deal and it looked delicious. I could tell my husband was in love but after eating our dinners we were too full for pie. I know, what were we thinking! Too full for dessert?! But I decided to go home and experiment to try to make something similar. Here is my first attempt at it:
The bottom layer is a classic, baked pumpkin pie. The center layer is cheesecake and the top layer is pumpkin cheesecake. It is in a pastry pie crust and topped with whipped cream. I wasn't completely satisfied with it but for a first attempt, I think I'm off to a running start. There are things I would like to improve and I had a ton of pumpkin pie filling left so I need to rework my amounts yet too. I'm going to keep working at it and hopefully I will be posting the finished recipe for it by Thanksgiving. In the meantime, my husband is loving the idea of getting to eat all my attempts in figuring out a recipe I'm really happy with!
