So this a staple at our Thanksgiving dinner. I just know every year that it is my job to make this. And let me just tell you, it is gone in two seconds! Give it a try this turkey day, and see what you think!

2 pkgs. (8 oz.) cream cheese, softened

1/2 c. sugar

1/2 tsp. vanilla

2 eggs

1/2 c. canned pumpkin

1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon

1 dash of cloves

1 dash of nutmeg

1 9 in. graham crust (or you can make your own)

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees

1-Mix cream cheese, sugar and vanilla with your mixer on medium speed until blended; add eggs and blend well.

2-Remove one cup of your batter in to a small bowl; add your pumpkin and spices to this bowl.

3-Pour the remaining batter in to your crust.

4-Top with pumpkin batter and spice mixture.

5-Bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 min, or until the center is almost set.

*When pie has cooled serve with fresh whipping cream or vanilla ice cream. Sooo yummy!!
