  • Maybe try a pumpkin-cheesecake pie on a graham cracker crust. I don't think you can bake them.

  • You can make it, but I dont think it would taste very good. You never know until you try though.
    You could buy a prepared graham-cracker crust and some pumpkin pie filling, pour it in and bake it. If it doesnt turn out, you maybe wasted a little money, but you will know!
    Yes, you can bake them.

  • This pumpkin pudding is like a pumpkin pie without the crust. Enjoy pumpkin pudding with a dollop of whipped cream and a sprinkling of cinnamon sugar.
    Prep Time: 0:10
    Cook Time: 1:0
    1 can (15 ounces) pumpkin puree
    3/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
    1 1/4 teaspoons ground cinnamon
    1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
    1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
    3 large eggs, slightly beaten
    1 3/4 cups half-and-half or light cream
    Butter a 1 1/2-quart casserole. Heat oven to 350°.
    In a large mixing bowl, combine all ingredients and whisk or beat on low speed until blended. Pour into the prepared casserole and bake for 55 to 65 minutes, or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. If desired, serve with sweetened whipped cream and cinnamon sugar for sprinkling.
    Serves 6 to 8.

  • That pudding sounds good. Or the cheesecake. To me, that crust doesn't sound good on a pumpkin pie, though.

  • I've tried, it doesnt come out very well. The filling makes the bottom soggy and the edges burn.

    I would try a pumpkin cheesecake or something like that.

  • Absolutely! Though you may have better luck with a nut crust. My favorite dessert recipes all come from Sweet Savvy:
