Layered Pumpkin Pie Cheesecake

5/5 - (2 votes)

This dish is a mixture of two classic autumn desserts creating a beautiful, layered pie that is sure to wow your friends. I decided to use a New York style cheesecake when making this dessert as I think it works really well with the traditional American pumpkin pie allowing us to cook them together and uniting the mixture and flavours. Although this desert may seem a little complicated it is actually very simple and by following the recipe step by step you will be sure to get great results!

Makes: 1 medium to large cheesecake

Cook time: 40-60 mins

Prep time: 25 mins


Biscuit base

100g butter

150g biscuit

1tsp nutmeg

New York style Cheesecake

900g cream cheese

250g caster sugar

1 1/2 tbsp plain flour

3 eggs and 1 yolk

280ml sour cream

1tsp nutmeg

Pumpkin pie

2 eggs and 1 yolk

175g soft brown sugar

425g pumpkin puree

100ml heavy cream

50g flour

1 ½ tsp cinnamon

1tsp ginger

2tsp nutmeg

1tsp ground cloves

  1. Grease and line a 9 inch (add metric here too) cake tin and preheat the oven to 150°C.
  2. Melt the butter and crush the biscuits. Combine the melted butter and biscuit crumbs together and then press into the bottom of your prepared tin.
  3. Place the tin in the fridge and leave to set.
  4. Combine all the ingredient for your pumpkin pie.
  5. Whip your cream cheese with a whisk until light and fluffy, add the sour cream and mix to combine.
  6. Slowly incorporate the eggs adding one at a time to ensure they are fully mixed in, then sift in the flour, add the sugar and nutmeg.
  7. Pour the pumpkin pie mixture on top of the biscuit base and smooth out, pour the cheesecake mix on top, if you want to add another level of elegance to this pie add a few teaspoons of pumpkin pie mixture to the top and swirl through with a cocktail stick.
  8. Place a dish filled 1/3 of the way up with water into the bottom of the oven and then put the pie in the oven for 40-60 minutes until it is set with only a slight jiggle.
  9. Leave in the oven but open the door slightly and allow to cool fully like this for 2 hours then transfer to the fridge for a further hour before serving.

The pie has a slice taken out of it allowing us to see the three layers inside; a biscuit base, followed by a layer of pumpkin pie and then a layer of cheesecake. on the top of the pie we can see pumpkin mixture has been swirled into the white creamy cheesecake mix giving a beautiful swirled appearance.)
