This is a delicious and indulgent treat. A shortcrust pastry case is layered with cheesecake, spiced pumpkin custard and caramelised pecans. It's perfect with a dollop of whipped cream.

My friends enjoyed this pie a lot. When making it, I ran into a couple of problems. The 9" shell I used was too small! I had so much pumpkin filling left over. So, I grabbed more cream cheese, and made another 9" pie and 12 little tarts. This allowed me to use up all the pumpkin mix. I also found that it was best to let the cheesecake part sit for a little bit before pouring the pumpkin over top. One comment I received from my friends was that the topping was really sweet. Might try cutting back on the sugar next time. Other than that, great recipe! - 25 Oct 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Hubby loves his pumpkin pie...so I decided to try another recipe other than my regular. This turned out very good. We both liked this...I actually liked this one more than the other one I had been using. Hubby still likes the other one better, hence the 4 star rating. Will make again....with the family and see what they think. Thanks for the post. - 24 Nov 2004 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This is delicious and has a great appearance. I don't know why more people haven't tried this. Maybe the ingredients or steps seem overwhelming, but it really is easy and fast. I used a ready-made crust and mixed each filling layer in my food processor. I brought it to work to share with my co-workers and everyone loves it. It's delicious and the topping adds so much flavor and texture. I am making another one tonight to share with family. Thank you for a really easy and delicious recipe that looks much harder than it actually is. - 01 Oct 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
