  • 5 tablespoons cold butter
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 4 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1/2 cup sugar

  • 1 cup canned (from 15-oz can) or smoothly mashed cooked pumpkin
  • 1/2 cup evaporated milk
  • 1 egg, slightly beaten
  • Whipped cream, if desired

Preparation Instructions:

  1. Heat oven to 425°F. Grease 9-inch glass pie plate with shortening or cooking spray. In medium bowl, place Bisquick mix. Cut in butter with pastry blender or fork (or pulling 2 table knives through mixture in opposite directions), until mixture looks like fine crumbs. Stir in water; shape into ball with hands. Press dough in bottom and up side of pie plate.
  2. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until lightly browned; remove from oven. Cool while preparing cream cheese and pumpkin fillings. Reduce oven temperature to 350°F.
  3. In small bowl, beat cream cheese, 2 tablespoons sugar and the vanilla with electric mixer on low speed until well blended. Add egg yolk; beat well. Spread cream cheese mixture in bottom of partially baked pie crust.
  4. In large bowl, mix 1/2 cup sugar, the cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, salt, pumpkin, evaporated milk and egg. Carefully pour pumpkin mixture over cream cheese mixture. Bake at 350°F. 15 minutes. Cover crust edge with strips of foil to prevent excessive browning; bake 30 to 40 minutes longer or until knife inserted in center comes out clean. Cool completely; about 1 1/2 hours. Refrigerate about 2 hours or until serving time. Garnish each serving with dollop of whipped cream. Cover and refrigerate any remaining pie.
