I might have decided to go a little overboard for our Thanksgiving desserts this year. Two pumpkin pies, a Southern Ambrosia Coconut Apple Pie with Pecan Cream Cheese Topping (oh yes, recipe forthcoming), a layered ice cream cake (another recipe forthcoming), and this phenomenal Layered Pumpkin Pie Cheesecake with Pecan Streusel. Ohhhh my! We have had dessert forever-and-ever in this house!

But I tell you, this elevates a normal pumpkin pie to new heights – a delightfully tempting cream cheese layer underneath that spicy pumpkin, all topped with a pecan streusel that puts you on your knees. My kids love pumpkin pie, and they fell head over heels in love with this variation. So did I 🙂

Here’s a tantalizing close-up of the streusel topping. I love how the cheesecake bubbled up to the surface, it created a gorgeous marbling when served.

I used a store-bought graham cracker pie crust to save on time (with five desserts, ahem), but next time I want to try my hand at making my own. In the meantime, I’m gonna break out the whipped cream and add a small dollup on top of the piece I have sitting right here with some tea. Heh.
