  • This is an excellent alternative to pumpkin pie if you want to change it up.
  • It’s made in only two bowls and is easy to make!

Sweet Pumpkin Paradise Pie

Pumpkin Paradise Pie is a great name because it combines the best of both types of pies—cheesecake and pumpkin pie! The bottom layer is a lightly sweet, creamy cheesecake with a hint of vanilla. The pumpkin layer is sweetened and spiced pumpkin topped off with a sweet pecan crumble.

Pecan Streusel Topping

The streusel topping is added to the top of the pie and baked for another 15 minutes, bringing out the nuttiness of the pecans for the ultimate flavor.

How To Store Leftover Pumpkin Paradise Pie

Pumpkin Paradise pie is best enjoyed the day it is made. If you do have leftovers, it is best to put the pie in an airtight container and keep it in the fridge. Yes, the fridge, because the cream cheese is dairy, and the pumpkin pie layer has dairy and eggs and it can breed bacteria if left at room temperature for more than 3 hours. The difference with store-bought pumpkin pies is that they include shelf-stable ingredients such as preservatives, which allow them to last longer.

Karlynn’s Tips

This recipe would also make two regular 9-inch pies. Just make sure to divide the fillings evenly and reduce the baking time, as they will cook faster.

We made this pumpkin paradise pie for our family to enjoy, and it was a huge hit. The kids raved over the topping and let’s be honest, it was also my favorite part too with the sweet toasted pecans on top.

Happy Baking

Love,

Karlynn

    Stunning! Love the name and cannot wait to see how it looks inside – though, knowing you – everyone was caught up in the eating and there wasn’t any left to photograph!
