Pumpkin Cheesecake Pie

One of many delicious recipes to come from our Thanksgiving feast...pumpkin cheescake pie! Two beautiful things in one: pumpkin pie and cheesecake. I feel like pumpkin is the quintessential Fall food and I was more than happy to have stumbled upon this recipe from smitten kitchen! This may not be the most fit recipe, but I tried to healthify it a little by trimming down the sugar. I cannot explain or describe how wonderful this pie was. I’m usually not a huge pumpkin pie person, but I was eating this for every meal (yes, breakfast too). I just couldn’t control myself! Thebeautiful smoothness of the pumpkin with a cheesecake marble on top was too much for me to handle. A perfect dessert that isn’t cloyingly sweet.

It is the holidays in one bite: nutmeg, clove, pumpkin, cinnamon. It is so smooth and delicious. It may look like a recipe with a lot of steps, but it isn’t very complicated in actuality. I actually want to try making it without the crust as I’m not a big crust kind of gal. It’s a recipe I am absolutely going to make again. One of my favorite desserts now! Although this may not be a healthy recipe, it’s not too unhealthy to feel loads of guilt over. As always, stay hungry and fit!
