Low-Sugar Pumpkin Cheesecake Pie

This Low-Sugar Pumpkin Cheesecake Pie is officially my favorite Thanksgiving Dessert, but this cheesecake pie would be great any time you want a pumpkin dessert that's lower in sugar.

(For Thursday Treats I remind you about favorite recipes that are a little higher in carbs or more indulgent than the usual low-carb recipes you find on this blog, and this amazing Low-Sugar Pumpkin Cheesecake Pie is a treat I've made for Thanksgiving every year since I first posted the recipe. If you like pumpkin at all, this is a must try!)

I never was a fan of pumpkin pie, and back in the days when I wasn't watching my sugar intake I'd always pick banana cream for my Thanksgiving pie. Then I started on a lower-carb/low-glycemic eating path, and discovered a recipe for Reduced Sugar Layered Pumpkin Cheesecake that I really liked, and I made that a few years for Thanksgiving.
Then one year I got the urge to try something slightly different, and came up with this pumpkin cheesecake pie that's halfway between pumpkin pie and pumpkin cheesecake. It has more pumpkin than the cheesecake recipe did, and the texture is a little closer to pumpkin pie, while still having that creamy mouth feel of cheesecake.

How did I like it" I gobbled up the piece you see in this photo for breakfast when I first posted the recipe! I'm adding this recipe to the collection of Carb-Conscious Thanksgiving Recipes, and I highly recommend it for a slightly different take on Thanksgiving pie. And if you want a version of this that's even lower in carbs, you could try making a Low-Carb Walnut Pie Crust for this instead of the purchased crust I used, which is what I'm going to be trying this year!
