I want to make a pumpkin pie. I have seen some recipes on here that include cream cheese. Is that a must? Is that how it is usually made?
How do I make it spicy?

  1. NOPE!


    1 (9 inch) unbaked pastry shell
    1 (16 oz.) can pumpkin
    1 (14 oz.) can Eagle Brand sweetened condensed milk
    2 eggs
    1 tsp. cinnamon
    1/2 tsp. salt
    1/2 tsp. ginger
    1/2 tsp. nutmeg

    Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Combine ingredients in large bowl, pour into shell, bake 15 minutes, reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees and continue baking 35-40 minutes until knife inserted in center comes out clean.

  2. No, I have never used cream cheese in my pumpkin pie. Google pumpkin pie recipes on line and you will find plenty of good ways to make it.

  3. I don’t add cream cheese to my traditional pies. If you want to , I guess you can. Do you have Pumpkin puree, or pumpkin pie mix?
    Use edit and let us know

    Here you go, since you’re using pumpkin pie mix, watch the spices
    * 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese
    * 2 cups pumpkin puree
    * 14 ounces sweetened condensed milk
    * 3 eggs
    * 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
    * 1 (9 inch) unbaked pie crust

    1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
    2. Mix cream cheese and condensed milk together until smooth. Stir in the pureed pumpkin, pumpkin pie spice and eggs. Mix until well combined. Pour batter into the pie shell.
    3. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 45 minutes or until a knife inserted 1 inch from the edge comes out clean. Serve warm.

  4. cream cheese? EW!!! ew! ew! ew! no!. NO CREAM CHEESE. use milk, sugar, and or cinnamon. got it? u will ruin the pie with cream cheese. u may use a little if u choose to, but i wouldn’t recommend it.

  5. you need to get pumpkin pie filling…jus tget a pie crust and dump it in there and cook it in the oven.

    personally i prefer the chocolate pies lol i hate pumpkin!

  6. I don’t. Look for a recipe that calls for you to beat the egg whites separately. It comes out light, fluffy and so tasty.

  7. Only if you want cream cheese pumpkin pie. ( is delicious)
    For regular pumpkin pie:
    Pumpkin …1 small can per 9in. pie (Large can… 2 pies… double ingredients)
    3 eggs (save just a little egg white in separate small bowl)
    1 can condensed milk
    1 1/2 cups sugar
    1/2 cup brown sugar
    2 teaspoons to 4 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice depending on how you want flavor to be.
    1/2 teaspoon vanilla
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    Mix all ingredients with mixer 2 to3 minutes until smooth should pour slowly not runny into unbaked pie shell.
    with the small amount of egg white saved, brush edges of pie shell all around ( creates delicious browning of edges)
    Bake in pre-heated 350 for 60 mins or until you can put dinner knife in pie and comes out clean. (Just take knife and make a 1/2 inch cut into center of pie)
    When baked let cool completely and refrigerate.
    I like to sprinkle a little nutmeg across top of pie right after I take it out of the oven….delicious!
    Good baking to you Happy Thanksgiving!

  8. You don’t -have- to. Different recipes call for different things. The cream cheese would probably help give a creamier feel to the pie and sort of lower the boldness of the pumpkin. If it sounds good, go ahead and try it. If you don’t like the idea, find a different recipe. There are plenty all over.

  9. You don’t need to add cream cheese to make a pumpkin pie. Libby’s has the best pie recipe. See below for details.

  10. The cream cheese part is for a pum[kin cheese cake or no-bake cheese cake not pie. SInce it is the mix it already has spices, but you can add a littel more pumkin pie spice if you want to.
