Double Layer Pumpkin Pie RecipeNovember 19, 2015
I love cheesecake and I love pie…so what better way to satisfy both cravings with this double layer pumpkin pie! This is a back of the box recipe that I found a long time ago, and it's always a hit with family or guests. I wanted to make it more weightloss friendly so I used reduced-fat cream cheese and Splenda, however, Truvia or other sweeteners such as that will work great, too. Super easy and quick, no cooking,…and a true winner!
Double Layer Pumpkin Pie Recipe
INGREDIENTS FOR FIRST LAYER:
- One 8-ounce pkg reduced-fat cream cheese, softened
- 2 tablespoons half & half or milk
- 3 tablespoons Splenda granular
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 1/2 cups Splenda-sweetened whipped cream or Cool Whip (sugar-free or regular), thawed
INGREDIENTS FOR SECOND LAYER:
- 1 cup low-fat milk
- Two packages (Four serving size each) sugar-free, instant vanilla pudding mix (I’ve also used butterscotch!)
- One 15-ounce can Libby’s pure pumpkin puree (not pie filling)
- 3 tablespoons Splenda Granular
- 1 teaspoon Pumpkin Pie Spice*
- One ready-made graham cracker crust – optional
- Dollop of fat-free whipped topping - optional
- In a large bowl beat together cream cheese, half & half, 2 tablespoons of the Splenda, and vanilla until smooth.
- Gently fold in thawed whipped topping.
- Carefully spread mixture into crust. (You can also layer this in pretty bowls or glasses.)
- Using the same bowl combine milk and pudding mix pumpkin puree and beat until thickened. Beat in Splenda and spices.
- Pour over the cream cheese mixture. Refrigerate 4 hours or until set.
Note: You can substitute 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger, and 1/8 teaspoon cloves for the Pumpkin Pie Spice.
