My best friend Pat gave me this recipe several years ago. It is a little different from a traditional pumpkin pie, but it is oh so good. Honestly, can you ever go wrong with pumpkin and cream cheese anything??? This year my stepdaughter requested this instead of any kind of birthday cake, it is her absolute favorite. I sometimes make it for Thanksgiving or Christmas, and it makes a lot, but we put it in the fridge and enjoy with the rest of the holiday leftovers!
