Stove Top Cream Cheese Pumpkin Pies

Rose Mary Mogan


I made a discovery over the holiday. I discovered that if I heat my canned pumpkin pie mixture from the can on the stove top till it's piping hot, that the cream cheese will blend much easier into the filling. This in turn creates a creamy and smooth blended pie filling.

I then blended all of the dry ingredients separately , & all of the liquid ingredients together, & this gave me a much creamier and smooth textured pie filling.

The results were very much improved over the original version. If you heat sweet potatoes first, why not Pumpkin, amazing what heat does to the filling.
