"This pie 's three layers are sensational: The bottom is a creamy cheesecake layer, the middle is a sweet and spicy pumpkin layer, and the top is a butter pecan streusel that melts and mingles with the pumpkin layer as it bakes."
1 (9 inch) pie shell
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese,
1/4 cup white sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 egg, beaten
1 1/4 cups pumpkin puree
1 cup evaporated milk
2 eggs, beaten

1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons butter, softened
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
2. To Make Cheesecake Layer: In a medium mixing bowl, beat cream cheese until smooth. Beat in 1/4 cup sugar, then add vanilla extract and 1 egg. Beat mixture until light and smooth. Chill mixture for 30 minutes, then spread into pastry shell.
3. To Make Pumpkin Layer: In a large bowl, combine pumpkin puree, evaporated milk, 2 eggs, 1/4 cup brown sugar, 1/4 cup white sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. Mix until all ingredients are thoroughly combined.
4. Pour pumpkin mixture over cream cheese layer. Cover edges of crust with aluminum foil.
5. Bake in preheated oven for 25 minutes. Remove foil from edges and bake an additional 25 minutes.
6. To Make Pecan Streusel Layer: While pie is in oven, combine flour and 2 tablespoons brown sugar in a small bowl. Mix well, then add softened butter or margarine and stir until ingredients are combined. Mix in pecans.
7. After pie has been in oven for 50 minutes, remove and sprinkle pecan streusel evenly over top. Bake for an additional 10 to 15 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.

Thanks for posting this recipe. I was just looking for some special or original pumpkin pie. I'm used to make one layer pumpkin pie and I decided that it would be interesting to make something different. In our family is the pumpkin pie very popular and I'm sure that this recipe will confirm that.

Take care,
