Pretty easy-peasy pumpkin pie

 < Ingredients for the easiest, most delicious pumpkin pie ever! >

A chill is in the air, leaves are on the ground, scarves are now in full rotation, and it is totally time for hot cider and pumpkin pie!  For a wonderful dinner with friends the other night, I whipped up a few of these easy, delicious pumpkin pies.  The recipe, officially titled 'Sensational Double Layer Pumpkin Pie,' is one that one of my most favorite women in the world loves to make, and has been kind enough to share with me.  It was a hit the other night, and I am excited to make this again for upcoming Thanksgiving celebrations!

Sensational Double Layer Pumpkin Pie
        Ingredients: 4 ounces softened cream cheese    2 small packages instant vanilla pudding
                                     1 tablespoon half and half             1 16 ounce can pumpkin
                                     1 tablespoon sugar                         1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
                                     1 1/2 cups cool whip topping        1/2 teaspoon ginger
                                     1 graham cracker pie crust             1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
                                     1 cup cold half and half

Beat cream cheese, 1 tablespoon milk, and sugar in large bowl.  Stir in whipped topping.  Spread in crust.  Our 1 cup cold half and half in bowl.  Add pudding mix, and beat well.  Stir in pumpkin and spices.  Mix well. Spread in crust over cream cheese layer.  Refrigerate 4 hours or until set.  Garnish as desired and enjoy. Makes 1 pie.
