This no-bake pumpkin pie will be an instant hit with friends and family! 

Yes, it really takes only 10 minutes to prepare the filling for this pie. It's a snap to prepare, especially if you use a "ready" graham cracker crust. Or, if you have a little more time, make a homemade graham cracker crust. See the tips for a quick and easy crust recipe.

Plan in advance so the pie has time to chill thoroughly. I recommend at least 2 hours.

What You'll Need

  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1 cup pumpkin or squash puree
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 2 1/2 cups frozen whipped topping, thawed, regular or lite (most of an 8-ounce tub)
  • 9-inch graham cracker crust, purchased or homemade
  • whipped topping or sweetened whipped cream, for topping
  • cinnamon sugar for sprinkling, optional

How to Make It

 In a mixing bowl with electric mixer, beat the cream cheese with the brown sugar, pumpkin or squash, vanilla, and spices until well fluffy and well blended. Fold in the 2 1/2 cups of whipped topping. 

Spread the mixture in the graham cracker crust. 

Cover and chill the pie for 2 to 3 hours before serving. 

Serve with whipped topping or freshly whipped cream and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar, if desired.

Expert Tips

  • Homemade Graham Cracker or Crumb Crust - In a bowl, combine 1 1/2 cups of graham cracker crumbs or gingersnap crumbs with 6 tablespoons of melted butter and 1/4 cup of granulated sugar. Press the crumbs over the bottom and up the sides of a 9-inch pie plate to form a crust. Chill the crust thoroughly. For a firmer crust, bake it in a preheated 375 F oven for 8 to 10 minutes. Cool and fill.
