While some say pumpkin makes the best Thanksgiving pies, homemade dough and custard filling isn’t every baker’s forte. For a quicker alternative, this recipe uses a snickerdoodle cookie dough crust that’s pressed into the bottom of a pie pan and baked. Instead of a custard, the filling gets its creamy texture from a little gelatin, cream cheese, pumpkin puree, and spices. After pouring the mixture into the crust and chilling in the fridge, this easy pie has all the flavor of its classic cousin with a fraction of the effort.

Ingredients:

  • Cream cheese
  • Pumpkin puree
  • Cinnamon
  • Nutmeg
  • Gelatin
