Ingredients

For the crust:

  • 1 1/2 cups crushed chocolate cookies
  • 1/4 cup melted butter

For the filling:

  • 8 oz softened cream cheese
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 eggs — large
  • 15 oz Pumpkin Pure — not pie filling (1 can)
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/8 tsp salt

For the ganache:

  • 1 cup dark chocolate (chopped) — could substitute dark chocolate chips
  • 1/3 cup heavy cream — (+2 tbsp more if the glaze is too thick)

For garnishing:

  • 1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips — melted, for decoration

Instructions

For the crust:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F.

  2. Spray a 9-inch pie dish with cooking spray.

  3. In a bowl, combine crushed cookies and butter. Mix to combine. 

  4. Spread to the bottom of the pie dish and press to the bottom and sides. Bake for 6 minutes, then cool.

For the filling:

  1. In a bowl, beat together cream cheese and sugar until combined. Scrape down the sides and bottom of the bowl. Add in eggs, one at a time, beating on low speed to incorporate after each addition.

  2. Add in pumpkin pure, vanilla, salt, pumpkin pie spice and heavy cream. Beat until just combined.

  3. Pour  filling over the baked crust and bake for 40-45 minutes, until the top/center is set.

  4. Cool at room temperature for at least 1 hour.

For the ganache glaze:

  1. Place the heavy cream in a small pot and bring to a boil. Pour over the chocolate. Stir until smooth. Add more hot creamer, if the glaze appears too thick.

  2. Spread the glaze on top of the pie. Cover and refrigerate for at least 3 hours.

    After that, you can drizzle with melted chocolate.
