Pumpkin Cheesecake Pie

This is probably one of the best tasting pumpkin pies I've made. Combining cheesecake with pumpkin pie makes for one very delicious pie. Our Thanksgiving meal always includes pumpkin and apple pie.

    1. Hi Amy, yes you do add sugar to the whipped cream. I like to use powdered sugar (icing sugar) but granulated sugar will work. I add gradually to get to the desired sweetness. Hope you enjoy!
