It’s no secret that I love pumpkin recipes…I’ve shared a bunch of them over the years and today I’m sharing a recipe that fits into TWO categories that I love…Pumpkin, and No Bake!

This no bake pumpkin pie is great for holidays but we also make it throughout the year when we’re craving a pumpkin pie. It’s such an easy recipe for pumpkin pie that you don’t even need a special occasion to whip one up!

Here’s what you’ll need to make a no bake pumpkin pie:

This recipe uses 100% pumpkin puree or you can make your own! We also need cream cheese, packed brown sugar, vanilla extract, pumpkin pie spice, heavy whipping cream, cream of tartar, and a ready to use graham cracker crust!

That’s all. If you want to skip making your own whipped topping you can also just substitute whipped topping of your choice for the cream of tartar and the whipping cream!

How to make no bake pumpkin pie:

Get out a large mixing bowl and beat the cream cheese for about 30 seconds until it’s creamy. This should be softened cream cheese so there shouldn’t be any lumps. 

Now add in the brown sugar and mix well.

Mix in the pumpkin pie spice, vanilla extract, and pumpkin puree. Mix until well combined. 

Use a hand mixer or a stand mixer to whip the heavy whipping cream and cream of tartar for about 2 minutes. Use a medium high speed and add in more cream of tartar if necessary to get stiff peaks.

You’ll know it’s stiff peaks when you remove the beater and whipped cream can stand up without falling over. 

Split the whipped cream into 2 portions, 1 cup in each.

Add the whipped cream, 1 cup, into the pumpkin mixture and fold it together with the pumpkin filling until there are no more white streaks. Do this by hand with a spatula, not with a mixer!

Put the pumpkin filling into the crust that is already made! 

Now it’s time to decorate the top of the no bake pumpkin pie with the remaining whipped cream. You can get fancy and swirl it around the edge or just put it on top like I did! 

Put the pie into the refrigerator and leave it there for at least 4 hours, overnight is preferable!
