Why We Love Pumpkin Pie Graham Cracker Crust

  • Nothing screams fall like a piece of pumpkin pie. We make our pumpkin pie with cream cheese and pudding, which gives it an extra creamy texture!
  • Layers of pumpkin cheesecake, cool whip, and vanilla pudding are all layered on a graham cracker crust. Then, we top it with whipped cream topping and a sprinkle of cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice!
  • This is an easy make-ahead dessert. Thanksgiving dinner can be super busy – this pie can set in the refrigerator overnight so you don’t have to fuss with it in the morning.
  • Make on for now and one for later – this recipe makes 2 pies!! Use one now and pop the over in the freezer to use for another time!

No Bake Pumpkin Pie Ingredients

  • 2 cups canned pumpkin (or pumpkin puree)
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 8 ounces cream cheese softened
  • 2 8-ounce containers of Cool Whip or other whipped cream
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 3.4-ounce box instant vanilla pudding
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 pre-made crusts (9-inch crust)

Canned Pumpkin vs Pureed Pumpkin vs Pumpkin Pie Mix

CANNED PUMPKIN: This is a canned puree of pumpkin that has already been cooked and mashed before being processed. It’s usually sold in 15-ounce cans and contains no added sugar or spices. Canned pumpkin is great for baking as it has a thick, smooth texture and gives recipes a nice pumpkin flavor. It’s also an easy way to get that pumpkin flavor without having to buy a whole pumpkin or go through the hassle of preparing it yourself.

PUREED PUMPKIN: This is just what it sounds like; pureed fresh pumpkin that you can make yourself. It’s the same as canned pumpkin, except you make it from fresh pumpkins and can control the flavor and texture of your puree.

PUMPKIN PIE MIX: This is a pre-made blend of pumpkin, spices, and sweeteners that you can use for baking. It’s very similar to canned pumpkin but has added ingredients like cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and sugar. Pumpkin pie mix gives your recipes an intense pumpkin flavor and a more complex flavor profile than canned pumpkin. It’s great for making pies, muffins, and other baked goods that require a deeper level of sweetness and spice.

Pro Tip!

For this recipe, you will want to use canned pumpkin or pureed pumpkin, not pumpkin pie mix. If you use pumpkin pie mix you are essentially doubling the spices because the pumpkin pie mix already has the spices included.

How to Make No Bake Pumpkin Pie

To make our pumpkin pie recipe, you will be working in layers. You will want to make this at least a few hours before serving so it can chill in the refrigerator for a bit.

Please note, this recipe makes TWO pies! Don’t need two, give one to the neighbor or freeze it to enjoy later!

  1. CRUST: Let’s begin with the pie crust. BUY IT! Don’t bother making the pie crust, just grab two store-bought pie crusts. We like to use a graham cracker crust with our pumpkin pie, but feel free to use whatever type you like.

  2. BOTTOM LAYER: Grab a mixing bowl and mix together the cream cheese, sugar and one 8-ounce tub of whipped topping. Blend well with a hand mixer or a stand mixer. Fill your pre-made crusts with the bottom layer mix.
  3. Middle LAYER: Mix together the pudding and milk and stir until thick. Add 2 cups of the canned pumpkin and mix. Add the pumpkin pie spice, nutmeg, and cinnamon. Stir until blended. Spread the pumpkin mixture on top of the cream cheese layer.

  4. TOP LAYER: Last, for the very top layer, spread the second 8-ounce container of whipped cream to top the pies off! (or use our own Homemade Whipped Cream recipe!)

  5. TOP IT OFF: We like to sprinkle the pie with some cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice just to top it off!
  6. CHILL: Refrigerate for at least an hour before eating so the pie has time to set completely.
    PRO-TIP – can be kept in the fridge for up to 2 days. (Be sure to cover)
