Does this recipe look any good??? Paula Dean's pumpkin pie..

I am thinking about using this recipe for pumpkin pie from Paula Dean this year for Tgiving. It got a lot of good reviews. Here are the ingredients- do you think this would taste more like a pumpkin cheesecake though? I've never made a pumpkin pie with cream cheese.

1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
2 cups canned pumpkin, mashed
1 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 egg plus 2 egg yolks, slightly beaten
1 cup half-and-half
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) melted butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger, optional
1 piece pre-made pie dough
Whipped cream, for topping

  • I fully trust Paula Deen's recipes!! They've never done me wrong. They seem so simple, but if you follow the directions and ingredients, her meals and desserts come out perfect!

    It does sound like a pumpkin cheesecake. Last year, I made a pumpkin-pecan pie with eggnog whipped cream. It was a big hit!

  • It has enough pumpkin in it that it would overwhelm the cream cheese so it would taste more like a pumpkin pie than a cheesecake. I say bake one today and eat it to make sure its good!

    The recipe looks great.

  • It sounds yum! Just make sure that you make a really good crust; there is nothing worse than great pie filling with a nasty crust.
