Dulce de Leche Pumpkin Cream Cheese Pie

Amy Freeze


In my attempt to make a pumpkin pie that everyone in the family would like, I made a pumpkin pie that I actually like. This pumpkin pie trades the traditional pumpkin pie spices for caramel and cinnamon and the texture is more cheesecake-like than custard.
